PS3 HD Plus PHE-01 eSATA HDD Extender Offers Limitless Storage
According to pictures below (courtesy of Gemaga, linked above) this eSATA adapter dubbed the PS3 HD Plus PHE-01 latches to the bottom of any PS3 promising connectivity to an external SATA hard disk for some majorly powerful storage capacity.
Sure, there are other ways (such as THIS or THIS) of getting massive amounts of bytes onto the PS3.
One can simply swap in a new internal 2.5" SATA into the system, or even just hook up any old USB hard drive with little hassle; however, the latter won't give the same transfer speed as an eSATA.
From the looks of it, the PHE-01 also comes with an additional four USB ports.
Unfortunately, aside from what can be derived from the pictures there aren't any further details on this product yet... time will tell.
This doesnt look too bad, design to match PS3 and extra USB ports if you need them.
But was looking at the pictures and started getting confused. The last picture doesnt fit with the others cos it has a fan on the one end. I thought, ok I'm looking at it wrong, but the other end has the extended end with the USB ports so wheres the eSATA slot gone?
