I’ve been in love with the SATA cradle from the moment I saw it. Too bad that darn thing costs half a fortune when importing it from Japan. Sharkoon obviously saw the potential of the device as well and made a similar device available in Europe — USB only.
What a bummer. But finally the QuickPort Pro comes to the rescue and brings eSATA goodness to us poor, poor European pigs. Amazon Germany sells the QuickPort Pro for 36 Euro per unit. Quite a pricetag but worth the money if you work with many harddisks. Mine’s ariving tomorrow, together with a new pair of disks 🙂 .
