eSATA ExpressCard adapter

Sonnet today began shipping its Tempo SATA Express 34 host adapter for MacBook Pro owners or users of laptops with ExpressCard slots, according to Electronista. The card features two 3Gbps external SATA (eSATA) ports that can be used to connect hard drives that use the high-speed interface. When two drives are connected in a RAID 0 stripe the sustained transfer rate is better than any USB 2 or FireWire setup -- it can write at 100MB per second, according to Sonnet. The new Tempo card can additionally support up to 10 drives if each port is connected to an external enclosure with a built-in port multiplier. The card includes drive activity LEDs. The Tempo SATA Express 34 now for $130. It is with MacBook Pro (15-inch and 17-inch) and any Windows notebook with an ExpressCard (54) or ExpressCard 34 slot.
