I bought a Toshiba 2T eSATA for $107 and went to Fry's and got everything to build my computer and found out that my motherboard didn't have a port for eSATA. The salesman said it did. I know better than that but we all make mistakes so I call and they said another $50 for the motherboard. I figure about $120 for the eSATA Hard Drive and $50 more dallors for the motherboard and I figure I'm not sending $170 so I took the drive back and I'm going to get a USB3 drive when the time is right. I feel I made the right choice?
