e-sata board

on 9/7/2008

Plugged into my Apple Mac Pro it has performed well. The only caveat -- you must be careful to select the correct card slot. It will not work in all the slots. Depending on the model of your Apple, you may have to use slot 3. Once installed, it was performed flawlessly. To provide an estimate of speed: I transfered 320 MB of files from an external SATA disk. By USB 2.0 it took over four hours. With the eSATA connection, approximately 45 MINUTES!

Good card with good drive

on 9/23/2008

The card was easy to install on my Mac Pro because I didn't have to swap out the face plate. The card works fine, but my new Seagate FreeAgent Pro 1TB drive is just slow. Make sure you use a drive that you know is fast. There have been many complaints about the FreeAgent Pro 1TB drive being too slow, even though it's 7200RPM/32MB. Again, good e-SATA card.

Product Overview

Add Two eSATA Ports to Your Computer

Are you planning to incorporate external data storage in your computer setup, but need a SATA host controller card to make the connection? Install a Tempo™ SATA E2P-it's an affordable solution for adding external SATA ports that enable you to hook up single and multi-bay SATA drive enclosures for your mass storage needs.

Supports Up to 10 Drives

SATA drive enclosures offer flexibility not found in fixed drive installations inside a computer. Many offer swappable drive trays, which are perfect for managing daily backups and multiple projects, and most are portable. Some enclosures feature port multipliers, which enable up to five hard drives to communicate with the host adapter through one cable. Not all host adapter cards support port multipliers, but Tempo SATA E2P does-through its two ports, this card can handle up to ten drives!

Tempo SATA E2P is versatile. It supports the RAID features of OS X and Windows. It also supports hot-swapping of drives under OS X. Installation is simple-just plug in the card to any available PCIe slot, start your computer, and install a driver. When you need to add flexible, portable storage to your setup, Tempo SATA E2P gets you connected.
