Accessory Port Layout and Performance




The left side (from back to front) features a 1394 jack, the Ethernet port, two USB 3.0 ports, a combo eSATA / USB 2.0 port, and a card reader.




The back (from left to right in the image) features a DisplayPort 1.2 port, a HDMI port, a mini DisplayPort port, and the power jack.




The right side (from back to front) features a USB 2.0 port, various audio jacks (microphone, headphones, and two others), and the Blu-ray reader.




Above, you can see the USB 2.0 read performance of the Origin EON17-S. It produced an average of 30.7 MB/s, putting it in the middle of the pack.




USB 2.0 write performance comes in at 26.4 MB/s average. This put the EON17-S in second place.




As far as USB 3.0 performance goes, the notebook just breaks the 100 MB/s barrier at 102.4 MB/s. This puts it in the middle of the pack.




The trend continues with USB 3.0 write speeds, and the EON17-S barely squeaks into the 100 MB/s category with 102.2 MB/s. This puts it in the middle of the pack, but definitely further towards the back than the front.




Because the EON17-S is a desktop replacement notebook with lots of space, Origin placed an eSATA port on board. In terms of read performance, the EON17-S places second with 121.4 MB/s; just behind the 123.8 MB/s of the P2542.




A similar trend can be seen with eSATA write performance. The EON17-S again comes in second with a write speed of 152.6 MB/s —behind the leader's massive 198.6 MB/s.
