Professional 4-Port 6 Gb/s SATA Solution for Mac & PC Desktops with PCIe Slots

Why choose an eSATA card? External storage and professional SSD readers often have two or more interfaces from which to choose, including FireWire®, USB, and eSATA. Your computer has USB ports, may have FireWire ports, and maybe even a Thunderbolt port, too. So if you can just plug into your computer's existing ports, why consider an eSATA card? Performance and cost. Consider the facts that the 6 Gb/s eSATA interface offers superior throughput to that of all FireWire and USB interfaces, and Thunderbolt storage systems carry a price premium over eSATA storage systems. Sonnet's Tempo SATA Pro 6Gb 4-Port card is a cost-effective way to add four high-performance eSATA ports to your computer so you can take advantage of this fast interface.

3 out of 5 eggsBeware Bootcamp, SSD and Sata3

Pros: Works fine on my MacPro 4,1 as long as Bootcamp is not used. Uses x4 PCIe slot so the SSD drives have a smaller bandwidth bottleneck.

Cons: Hangs up Bootcamp Win7 booting. MacPro 4,1 with separate SSD internal (Sata2) drives for OSX Lion and Bootcamp Win7 Ultimate 64bit. With the card installed it will not boot into any Win7 OS including Win7 system restore DVD. OSX runs normally. Remove the card and Bootcamp and DVD boot normally when selected. Sonnet states that they do not see this problem.

Other Thoughts: Paid extra for a card that is both Mac and Win7 compatible. If it will not function for this purpose a less expensive card is a better choice.
