    If you don't need RAID, this eSATA card is much cheaper.

    Apart from the RAID figures, the eSATA benchmarks look very disappointing, especially compared with Firewire.

    Are these still Non-Bootable?

    :(

    I can't wait till apple adds esata ports on macbook pros (external) and they are bootable...

    Too bad Firewire 800 didn't take off with mainstream. I find Firewire 800 performance to match or exceed my expectations. eSATA is sort of like USB 2.0 in that the specs are much higher than actual performance according to posted benchmaks and CPU usage goes up with USB and eSATA. I really thought eSATA would be better. I guess it will be the new standard, hopefully future Macs will have this port built-in.
