Sonnet eSATA for Mac Pro
Sonnet Technologies on Tuesday unveiled the eSATA Extender Cable for Mac Pro computers, a product designed to connect up to two external SATA drives to unused SATA ports on the machine. Sonnet claims that the cable connects to two hidden SATA connectors that sit underneath a fan module, and extends them to the rear of the unit, securely held in place by a PCI slot cover. The eSATA Extender cable will ship soon for $30, and will be available from Sonnet's website.
Sonnet highlights the eSATA Extender Cable as being an excellent component to use with its Fusion F2 portable 2-Drive RAID storage system, first unveiled at Macworld Expo in January.
