Sonnet G5 Jive for G5 Macs
, an internal drive mounting system for Power Mac G5 computers. G5 Jive enables Power Mac G5 users to add up to three additional Serial ATA (SATA) hard drives inside any Power Mac G5. Users can simply add drives and a SATA PCI card to create a cost-effective solution for adding high-performance storage capacity. While the Power Mac G5 only provides mounting support for two internal hard drives, G5 Jive provides up to three additional drives. It consists of a custom metal base plate and mounting bracket, mounting screws, three internal SATA data cables, and a custom-designed 3-drive SATA power cable. G5 Jive mounts in the space at the bottom of the case beneath the optical drive and its installation has zero impact on PCI slots and adapter cards. It will ship later this month for $100.
