Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb
2 Port 6Gb/s eSATA ExpressCard/34 Host Adapter

Mac | PC | ExpressCard | eSATA

Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb ExpressCard/34 is versatile. Its fast, 6 Gb/s eSATA interface is well suited to deal with the increased bandwidth requirements of 6 Gb/s SSDs. Built around a new, second generation chipset, it offers greatly improved performance over older 6 Gb/s eSATA cards and is capable of transferring files at up to 375 MB/s! More onboard cache enables this Sonnet controller to perform even better in the latest computers, and Sonnet's Echo ExpressCard Pro Thunderbolt Adapter.

Why the Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb?
If you're planning to connect external storage to your computer, there's a good chance the enclosure will have two or more interfaces from which to choose, including FireWire®, USB, and eSATA. Your computer has USB ports, may have FireWire ports, and maybe even a Thunderbolt™ port, too. So if you can just plug into your computer's existing ports, why consider an eSATA card? Consider the facts that the 6 Gb/s eSATA interface offers superior performance to that of FireWire 800 and all USB interfaces, and Thunderbolt storage systems carry a price premium over eSATA storage systems. Sonnet's Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb ExpressCard/34 card is cost-effective solution for adding two high-performance eSATA ports to your computer so you can take advantage of this speedy interface.
