You know what? They all work.
So if or when you switch to the new OS, you can be sure that whether you attach your OWC or NewerTech storage solution to your Mac via USB, FireWire, or eSATA, it’ll work just as well in 10.7 as it did in the versions before it.
Now if we only had the same sort of assurance for software…
