It’s still a pretty slow process, but Thunderbolt is continuing to spread. We’ve seen a small number of hard drives and a few other accessories make it to market, with LaCie getting more out than most other companies so far. Now it’s added to its collection with the introduction of eSATA Hub ($199). It’s a smart solution for users who have eSATA drives lying around that they’d like to use with newer Macs at blazing fast speeds.
Styled after the Little Big Disk line, the hub doesn’t actually store any data itself. Flip it around to the back and you’ll find two eSATA inputs and two Thunderbolt ports. Just attach your drives, plug in a Thunderbolt Cable and eSATA Hub acts as a passthrough. You can even daisy chain with the second high speed port; hopefully there’ll be even more accessories to plug in soon.
