Very few desktops and even fewer laptops have eSATA ports, but for those lucky enough to have a system with one you can embrace the OCZ Throttle eSATA drive. The OCZ Throttle eSATA drive is one of the very first eSATA Flash drives available on the market today.The OCZ Throttle’s eSATA interface offers an incredible performance speeds of up to 90MB/second read and 30MB/sec write.
The 32GB OCZ Throttle eSATA drive is thicker than the 32GB OCZ ATV USB drive as seen in the picture above, but still looks like a normal USB key. Since the drive needs both USB and eSATA drives don't expect any smaller form factor to come till the USB port is no longer needed. Since the powered eSATA ports are not too common it is likely that this will be a years and by that time USB 3.0 will have come out. For those that are curious USB 2.0 has a maximum transfer speed of 60MB/sec and eSATA tops out at 300MB/Sec. The upcoming USB 3.0 standard is coming out during the middle of this year and will feature up to 625MB/Sec transfer speeds.
