Silicon Power proudly presented its USB/eSATA combi flashdrive last May. Thanks to the eSATA interface, this memory stick could reach very high transfer speeds, while the present USB-port made the drive maintain compatibility with systems not yet featuring eSATA ports. As of yet, Silicon Power has introduced a second edition of the flashdrive, available in storage capacities of 32 or 64 GB. The stick has slidable connectors, making it even more compact.
The combi-stick sports dimensions of 76,4 x 27 x 11,4 mm and weighs only 20 grams. By means of the eSATA connector, speeds of up to 90 and 50 MB/s for respectively reading and writing can be reached, while the conventional USB-port allows for a reading speed no greater than 30 MB/s. The USB-end of the stick is capable of writing at 20 MB/s. The 32GB combi-stick has a recommended price of 62 euro, while the 64 GB model is to cost 138 euro.
