The Tech Report has put their hands on a piece of storage hardware, the Kanguru’s e-Flash eSATA/USB thumb drive.  It looks like a normal flash drive, barring a slightly longer overall length, but it hides two heads.  One is the usual USB 2.0 connection but the head on the other end is new and unique.  It combines the speed of eSATA with USBs ability to deliver power in a hybrid connector.  You won’t find too many motherboard headers that already have this plug, but that is not a problem thanks to the PCI backplate with power and SATA cables.  Find out how well it worked in the full review.

“A new hybrid eSATA/USB connector nicely marries the two standards to provide external storage devices with plenty of bandwidth and adequate power. We take a look at Kanguru’s hybrid e-Flash drive to see if it’s a worthwhile upgrade over standard USB thumb drives.”
