Addonics, NitroAV eSATA

Both Addonics and NitroAV today released new products for eSATA storage and connectivity. Addonics released its 5x1 eSATA Hardware Port Multiplier (HPM), which permits as many as five drives to be connected to a single computer port. It can be used with RAID and non-RAID setups, and in the case of the former, a configuration can be easily transferred to another port intact. Hard drives are individually configurable as JBOD, RAID 0/1/10 or completely independent, and when combined with other HPMs, a computer can support as many as 20 eSATA drives. A single 5x1 is selling for $120.

NitroAV launched its 3-Port SATAStar PCI-Express SATA II 3Gb/s Professional Host Adapter. As the name implies, it links two SATA II devices to a host controller, in RAID configurations or otherwise. Onboard memory ensures that the CPU and the PCIe bus are not overwhelmed. Each port can be configured in JBOD, HPM, separate and RAID 0/1/0+1 modes. The device requires Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, and is now on sale for $60.
