The PhotoFast G-Monster eSATA V2

The G-Monster eSATA V2 is a little larger than some of the traditional USB sticks and is a monster compared to the Super Talent Pico Series drives. Since the eSATA port is a little larger than USB and these drives have so much more storage space, we are not complaining about an extra inch and a half.

Here we see the drive with the cap off exposing the eSATA port.

On the back PhotoFast has the model and capacity size listed on a sticker.

A mini USB port is located on the other side of the G-Monster eSATA stick. This allows users that do not already have self powered eSATA or you can use the drive as a USB thumb drive if an eSATA port is not available.

The preferred method will always be eSATA and here is a close up shot for users who may not be familiar with the connector just yet.
