I-O Data HDC-UX750 eSATA Drive

I-O Data has rolled out the HDC-UX750, an even bigger eSATA (External Serial ATA) hard drive in its line of 150mbit/second spinners. This one is a 750GB behemoth whose minimalist design doesn't look half bad.

If you're not familiar with eSATA, its advantage is that it's over three times faster than USB 2.0, which moves its data around at a relatively pokey 45Mb per second. Too bad it's not eSATA II, twice as fast as its slower, first-generation comrade. No pricing was announced on the HDC-UX750 yet.
