Of course I'm sure that Mac wouldn't do this but double check box and computer.
Oh, goody. I love complexities.

Thanks for the warning.

Your link does not work. Can you check it?

I did find a discussion of false vs true eSATA on the Tom’s Hardware site.

And another eSATA discussion on the Ars Technica site.

Another can of worms, eh?
