    I'm about to pick up a new PC laptop, and right as I was checking out, I realized it had no esata port.. I was really looking forward to having the esata / usb 3.0 combo for transfer speeds, but alas.

    Anyways, I'm about to spend an extra 60 bucks on:

    and

    http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produc...4_USB_3_0.html

    to try and work around the lack of esata, and still gain from the usb.. Has anyone ever tried this, or a similar combo with the Redmag 1.8"? I'm probably gonna get impatient and order before I get a response, but, luckily, the cost is pretty low, so, it's not too expensive of an experiment..

    thanks for any and all input.

    On some laptops you can take the optical drive out and add esata.
