Is the eSATA port also a USB one? Looks like both logos are above that port...

I believe so, and that's probably why the engadget reviewer said three USB ports.

If the eSATA / USB port really is a two-in-one, that's a clever way to save space and minimize ports.

I don't think it functions as a powered esata port, it can be used as an esata or as a usb port but not both at once.
