Product Details


This 2 Port PCI Express eSATA Controller Adapter Card offers simple connectivity between a host computer and eSATA devices. Providing two eSATA ports the adapter card offers a cost-effective solution for connecting hot-pluggable, high-speed storage, and in turn allows for easier data backups and archiving.

The PCI Express eSATA controller card also features port multiplier capability with command-based switching for connecting multiple external hard drives to a host Windows® system through a single external SATA connection.

A dual profile solution, the eSATA controller card includes a low profile/half-height bracket for adapting to slimline or small form factor system applications.
