I have a FreeAgentPro 320 with the eSATA interface.  I have had trouble with 
the eSATA interface; not sure if Seagate has updated firmware yet or not, but 
I know I'm not the only one who has had issues with the FreeAgentPro line and 
eSATA, both on Linux and Windows.  The USB interface works fine, but gets 
half the speed.

I have another eSATA drive, which just happens to be a Seagate 750GB drive in 
a generic eSATA/USB enclosure, that works just fine with my laptop and a SiI 
3132 based ExpressCard eSATA adapter.
