If you're planning to connect external storage to your computer, there is a good chance the enclosure will have two or more interfaces from which to choose, including USB, FireWire®, 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.

External storage systems with an eSATA interface offer great flexibility. Single drive enclosures are very handy if you need to back up data or move files from one computer to another. Many storage systems include swappable drive trays, which are perfect for managing daily backups and multiple projects. Some systems, like Sonnet's Fusion™ D400QR5 and Fusion F3, feature hardware RAID controllers that manage up to four drives and enable you to create large, protected RAID volumes, yet the systems only require a single cable to connect to this pro eSATA card.

Improved Performance

SpeedometerTempo 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 second generation 6Gb 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.

Wide Support – Optimized for Maximum Performance Over Thunderbolt

Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no ExpressCard slot? This card is ideal for use in Sonnet's Echo ExpressCard Pro Thunderbolt Adapter—the combo enables you to add two fast eSATA ports of connectivity to iMac®, Mac® mini, MacBook® Air, and MacBook Pro computers. This card supports the RAID features of OS X, Windows 7, and Windows Vista®. It supports hot-swapping of drives under OS X, and supports booting from attached drives under Windows 7. You can connect optical drives, too. AHCI compliance ensures installation of the card is simple—just plug it in to the ExpressCard slot—the necessary drivers are installed automatically. When you need to add flexible, external storage to your setup, Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb ExpressCard/34 gets you connected, fast.
