Unleashing Full eSATA Speeds
The ExpressCard/34 maximum bus speed is 2.5Gb/s, which limits eSATA 3Gb/s transfer speeds. The eSATA Hub clears this bottleneck, since Thunderbolt's 10Gb/s provides more than enough speed to accommodate 3Gb/s. Achieve the full speed potential of your eSATA drives.
Bring New Value to Your Storage
You already own eSATA drives, but can't connect them to your new Mac. The eSATA Hub modernizes your drives and puts them back to work. You don't have to buy new drives and scrap the old ones. eSATA and Thunderbolt connections are even software RAID compatible. Upgrade your storage with Thunderbolt technology.
Daisy Chain for Convenience
Thunderbolt technology supports daisy chaining, so you can connect a display or other Thunderbolt device to the eSATA Hub. This means you can connect, for example, your high-end LaCie 324i display and your eSATA Hub to your Mac via a single Thunderbolt cable. Thunderbolt technology also supports two channels – one dedicated for data, and the other for video – each with 10Gb/s of bandwidth. This means you can push and pull audio/video data without reducing bandwidth. Maximum convenience, minimum desktop clutter.Features:
