USB to eSATA converter?


Post by tmhorne »

In reading through various topics, it seems that a USB JBOD enclosure is frowned upon, but eSATA is okay. I haven't found a lot of details on why other than drives powering down for some reason.

Could one use a USB to eSATA converter or is it something systematically wrong with USB?

Something like this:
https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com-USB ... cs&sr=1-10
or this:
https://www.amazon.com/Shentesel-Extern ... ics&sr=1-5

Then get a MediaSonic or other eSATA jbod.
