Silicon Power has come up with an interesting way to distinguish itself from the ocean of USB sticks on show at Computex Taiwan: add an eSATA port.
Silicon Power introduced the 64 GB version of its eSATA/USB solid-state drive late last month and we clapped eyes on the thing this week at Computex. Basically, you’re looking at a regular USB flash drive that’s eSATA compatible, offering faster transfer rates.
Also available in 8 GB, 16 GB and 32 GB models, the device comes with an integrated Error Correction Code (EEC) to ensure accurate data transfers and can, of course, be used just like a regular USB stick.
The company’s USB sticks are also looking a lot more blinged out these days. Ranging from sparkly thumb drives to USB necklaces, it looks like Silicon Power is trying to appeal to the ladies in the audience.
