CFast is the latest Compact Flash media standard with native SATA interface to achieve much higher data throughput than current CF standard. The current generation of CFast media that we have tested show a data throughput of around 100 MB/sec. To learn more about the CFast standard, please review the following web page

The eSATA USB Hybrid port (EUHP) is a new port commonly found on new generations of Notebook computers. This new port works with both standard eSATA and Hybrid eSATA power cable (eSATAp). When connecting this CFast adapter to EUHP with an eSATAp cable, the CFast adapter can get power and data connections at the same time via a single cable.
