There's plenty of reason for this interface.....
I need to be able to connect it to my wireless router when home, and take it with me when I'm traveling or onsite at a client and need my VMs with me. And since I can't find an external drive that has both eSATA and Ethernet ports.... a router that has an eSATA port would take care of this. I can find drives (or cases) that are eSATA + USB, USB + Ethernet, but I can't find an external drive (or case) that has both Ethernet and eSATA. And eSATA is enough faster when directly connected to my PC, that I'd rather not be relegated to USB.
