This says it is:
Those ISO files copied over really quick!
With our best USB flash or hard drives we are fortunate when we see a 30-35MB/Second write speed.
65MB/Second is almost double the USB flash drive write speed.
So, if the server supports eSATA and the ability to hot swap those eSATA drives, then use it.
Is it worth it to install a third party eSATA PCI or PCI-E card into existing hardware?
Probably not. They will require proprietary drivers that may or may not work with our server or workstation hardware. So, they are not worth the risk.
But for those situations where the laptop or workstation has a built-in eSATA port that is hot swap capable, then the small added expense of purchasing an external hard drive with the port in it is worth it.
