mini SAS / 4-port SATA ExpressCard 34

This mini SAS ExpressCar adapterr supports connecting up to four SATA devices via an external mini SAS (SFF-8088)  connector.to a ExpressCard 34/54 slot on a Notebook computer. The controller supports throughput up to 6Gbps when installed into ExpressCard 2.0 slots on a Notebook computer. Together with Addonics' family of mini SAS cables, Notebook users can enjoy the fastest performance with any external storage devices using mini SAS connection.

* To achieve the maximum throughput, the ExpressCard slot must be version 2.0 or higher. Older Notebook with ExpressCard 1.0 will limit the speed to 2.5 Gbps. Performance per port may decrease if all four ports are transferring data simultaneously due to the limited throughput of the ExpressCard slot.
