You probably don't want to use something like this eSATA to USB adapter to keep an external drive going for any extended period of timeā€” it would be all too easy to trip up and unplug one of the many cables in such a complex setup. But for a quick data grab or dump onto a spare disk, I'd say this could come in pretty handy for anyone working on a bench with many disks, day in and day out. [Brando]
