    Do you what kind of heat did the card generate when under load?

    Did that I read that right? *only* £25?
    Seems a bit cheap for some new tech!

    You know why Intel is holding off on USB 3 adoption - they want everyone using Lightpeak instead - hence delay it until Lightpeak is ready!

    Bet they stand to make more money on Lightpeak due to having more patients!

    Hi, just to share, there has been a few changes to eSATA.
    1) It has merge with USB to form eSATAp (Power over eSATA)
    2) this solves the power cable issue
    3) For desktop users, simply get a bracket to translate the internal SATA & USB.
