    CoolGear.com announces first all in one external hard drive bridge board solution with FireWire, USB 2.0, and the all new eSATA.

    Clearwater, Florida, May 23 -- Portable hard drive enclosures have been on the market for many years differing in connection types such as USB and FireWire. One problem with today\'s storage solutions is the possibility that the connection types might not be available at a remote location. The consumer might be able to use USB 2.0 at home but only have FireWire available at work; impeding the devices usefulness.

    CoolGear is now offering a solution that offers a combination of USB 2.0, FireWire 800, and the blazing fast emerging eSATA technology. eSATA\'s key benefit is that it offers performance gains over 6 times existing technologies such as USB 2.0 and IEEE1394 (FireWire). It\'s integration with modern operating systems allows for the fastest insertion and removal detection. USB 2.0 and FireWire 400 offer between 50-60MBps, FireWire 800 (IEEE 1394b) offers 100MBps while eSATA has a tremendous 150MBps interface.

    eSATA enclosures have been on the market for several months now offering its high speed bus. However, the eSATA connector is new and the market penetration has not reached current external solution levels. You lose the portability aspect of your enclosure. CoolGear.com\'s solution offers a bridge board with eSATA, USB 2.0, and FireWire 800 from industry leading chip manufacturers such as Oxford, Texas Instruments, and Jmicron. This allows the consumer to take advantage of eSATA\'s 150MBps bus where available with the option to downgrade to other industry standard external ports if necessary. Another great feature of CoolGear\'s bridge board is the option of using either older IDE hard drives or newer SATA hard drives.
    The solution offers the consumer many options; from using either IDE or SATA hard drives, as well as plugging their devices into USB 2.0, FireWire, or eSATA
