Professional 2-Port 6 Gbps SATA solution for Mac & PC desktops with PCIe slots
Why choose an eSATA card? 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 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 Gbps 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 PCIe 2.0 card is cost-effective solution for adding two high-performance eSATA ports to your computer so you can take advantage of this speedy interface.

Improved performance
Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb PCIe 2.0 is versatile. Its fast, 6 Gbps eSATA interface is well suited to deal with the increased bandwidth requirements of 6 Gbps SSDs. Built around a second generation 6Gb chipset, it offers greatly improved performance over older 6 Gbps eSATA cards and is capable of transferring files at up to 375 Mbps! This Sonnet controller also performs better in the computers, Sonnet's Echo Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe cards, and Sonnet's xMac mini server 1U rackmount PCIe expansion system with Thunderbolt ports.

Wide support - optimized for maximum performance over Thunderbolt
Got a thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe slot? This card is ideal for use in one of Sonnet's Echo Express Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe cards - the combo enables you to add eSATA connectivity to iMac, Mac mini, and so on! AHCI compliance ensures installation of the card is simple - just plugs it in to any available PCI Express (PCIe) slot and then start your computer - the necessary drivers are installed automatically. When you need to add flexible, external storage to your setup, Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb PCIe 2.0 gets you connected, fast.
