OWC will add an eSATA port in your iMac for $169

Posted in Mac by Conner Flynn on August 2nd, 2010

Does Apple hate connectivity standards? Always seems that way. So OWC is now offering an inexpensive option to fix yet anothet Apple design flaw. For just $169, plus shipping, the company will cut a small hole in the bottom grill and install the missing eSATA port.

The only problem is that the port isn’t port-multiplication-compatible so it won’t work properly with most multi-drive RAID enclosures. Still, if you want it, they will do it. Like Burger King, you can have your iMac your way.

The drive has 16GB or 32GB capacities available with prices of $69.95 and $109.95 respectively. The drives both have an eSATA connector on one end and a mini USB port on the other.

Addonics has a new external optical Blu-ray drive that has both eSATA and USB connectivity. The Blu-ray drive can play Blu-ray movies and burn CDs and DVDs. The drive is also available in a DVD only version that can burn and play DVDs or CDs.
