NewerTech announced it will present an eSATA to USB 3.0 adapter at MacWorld 2011. The converter is available on the company's site for $29.95.
Newer Technology, Inc. (NewerTech®) http://www.newertech.com, a leading developer of Macintosh®, PC, iPod®, iPhone®, and iPad™ performance upgrades and accessories, announced today the NewerTech eSATA to USB 3.0 Adapter for using an eSATA interfaced equipped external hard drive with computers offering the ‘SuperSpeed’ USB 3.0 interface. The $29.95 MSRP adapter offers benchmark proven performance of up to 247MB/s reads and 206.4MB/s writes for the fastest data transfer rates available with external data storage/backup. NewerTech’s exclusive distributor, Other World Computing (OWC) will be demonstrating the new NewerTech eSATA to USB 3.0 Adapter and other NewerTech high performance, yet Plug and Play upgrades and accessories in booth #513 at the Macworld Expo, which begins today in San Francisco, California.
