I'm trying to find the right Epresscard 34 eSATA for my MacBook Pro for using it for backing up and at times when I need to use Boot Camp with Vista x64. There seems to be a host of different makers but they all don't give enough specifics as which will do the job better. Also the range in prices makes me wonder which is the best quality and which actually works. From what I've read to boot from an expresscard requires a certain chip set like jmicron but I'm not so sure if this correct or not. Since this will be my first Expresscard I'm a bit confused and need to be pointed in the right direction. I do know that I want SATA II drives.

Thanks.

hey teecee,
i had leoprad and had one esata card which worked great.
oneday i installed snow leopard, since that my card did not work anymore.
i searched everywhere and bought 4 cards from internet.
no one work.
finaly i bought one from germany and this one works.
i can install snowleopard on harddisk attached to this card, it works, i can format and install again and again it works.
i can boot.
i can cut videos and write directly to the harddisk and the card works.
the card works 12 hours no mistakes, no frozen os.
i have an ssd hd from kingstone.
my snow leopard boots in less than 7 seconds.

the card from germany i found on www.leaf-computer.de it is 1 port esata card calls LCOSBOOTER-1P
