The Sonnet Pro seems to be working well now.I've never used it, and based on the issues that people have with a esata express card, I probably will never use it
Where did you purchase, and did it include an extended warranty? I would love to purchase for my MBP that's on its way, but I read on the forums of one using having to exchange after a few months via the manufacture. I want something to last awhile for that price.I recently installed the Filemate 48GB Express Card as my boot volume, on my Unibody 17" MBP. I love it. It's the perfect mate for my internal 500GB 5400rpm drive. Wonder why I never did this sooner.
Yes, Seagate makes one called the BlackArmor. It comes with a 500gb external drive, and a 3.0 express card. It's 179.99, and currently available for purchase.When USB 3.0 does come out, will there be such a thing as a usb 3.0 card that one can put in the express card slot? Will it fit? Is that even possible?
Second, @Kelen, can you point me to a link of your multicard reader that you use? Thanks.
Do you only have MFG warranty on that ssd? Know of any online retailer with a warranty, replacement plan?I am using the FileMate 48GB card and an APIOTEK eSATA 300. Both work flawlessly... I can even boot from the eSATA. No problems with flakiness.
I bought it from Amazon, which was actually from Tiger Direct. The warranty is from WinTec for 1 year for parts and labor. Of course Tiger Direct has an extended plan for the item. So far no issues, just speed.Where did you purchase, and did it include an extended warranty?

Can anyone here, who has an express card, and uses estata, recommend a good manufacture/model for an esata card? Thanks!
