Active Media has bunked the USB 3.0 technology trend, instead unveiling a pair of new USB keys with eSATA drives.

Available in 16GB and 32GB capacities, the hybrid eSATA-USB 2.0 drives have read and write speeds set at up to 100MB/sec and 55MB/sec, respectively. The Active Media drives also come with an eSATA port, a mini USB 2.0 port and a USB cable for multiple modes of access.

Being a plug-and-play system, installing a driver shouldn't be necessary most of the time, and your data should be retained for at least a decade.

Available for purchase now, the drives are priced at $69.95 and $109.95 for the 16GB and 32GB sizes, respectively.
