Multiple slots, quick input and output
Sonnet's Qio is a multi-tasking marvel. Qio reads from and writes to just about any memory card - P2, SxS, CompactFlash, SDHC - and SATA storage systems with an eSATA interface, all at high speed. Replacing multiple standalone card readers, Qio's dual P2, SxS, and CF slots enable you to offload files more efficiently. Qio copies files between any cards, attached drives or host computer with aggregate bandwidth up to 200Mbps, much faster than FireWire or USB adapters are capable.
E4P SATA host controller inside
Qio contains the heart and circuitry of the acclaimed Sonnet Tempo SATA E4P SATA controller card. Four eSATA connectors on the back of Qio enable you to connect two Sonnet Fusion F2 portable 2-drive RAID SATA storage systems to easily copy files between them. Qio's support of port multipliers and integrated hardware RAID controllers also enables you to connect four drive enclosures!
ExpressCard/34 and CardBus adapter compatibility
Qio's SxS slots double as ExpressCard/34 slots, and the P2 slots are compatible with CardBus cards. If you're a notebook user, this effectively sextuples the number of expansion card slots available to you. If you're a desktop computer user, Qio enables you to swap adapter cards without cracking open the case. This added compatibility enables you to utilize Wi-Fi, FireWire, USB, Gigabit Ethernet, and other adapters as well.
Travel and desktop companionProduct Highlights
Qio is small - about the size of three stacked CD cases - and takes up so little space, you can use it just about anywhere. It's rugged, too - its robust aluminum case withstands heavy use.
