Kanex has tried its hand at USB adapters for the Mac, and Thunderbolt cables. Now, it’s combining the two technologies into its Thunderbolt to eSATA + USB 3.0 Adapter ($80); a version that swaps out the eSATA port for Gigabit Ethernet is coming soon. The small black box doesn’t hold a lot of secrets, but rather, will help professionals connect their devices with minimal hassle.
Measuring 3.2” by 1.9” by 0.82”, the black plastic box that’s the core of the adapter is light. Both its ports are found together on one end, side-by-side. Sticking out of the back, like a tail with a 3” cable between the box and the Thunderbolt plug. While it’s a bit expensive, if you want to use eSATA or USB 3 accessories with a Mac that could use a little port assistance, you’ll appreciate the functionality.
