That is pretty darn cool.
I don't think I've seen a drive like that before with the USB connector built in.

Yes, it is... 8-)
I just wish they would also include a cap for the exposed SATA II header pins. However, I would imagine (hope) that section of the device is disabled via the onboard controller if the USB interface is active.
