Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
A nice and mostly undiscovered feature which most of the newer Laptops and Desktops offer, is that you can connect an USB device to your eSATA port.
eSATA/USB is a type of serial port in which eSATAp (Power over eSATA), eSATA or a USB device can be plugged into the same port.
SERIAL ATA INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION acknowledges eSATAp as the actual name for the new eSATA/USB combo port. This is to differentiate and to prevent confusion with the original eSATA port.
Only one type of device can be plugged in at any one time.
