Features

Connect eSATA Drives to New Macs

Better speeds, better value. With the eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series, now you can connect eSATA drives to your Thunderbolt-compatible Mac. Connect up to two drives to the Hub, which connects to the Thunderbolt port on your new Mac. The eSATA Hub is the perfect solution for companies that use eSATA drives, but have upgraded their Macs to versions without ExpressCard/34 slots. It also offers a great way for photographers or other creatives to boost eSATA drive performance.

Unleashing Full eSATA Speeds

The ExpressCard/34 maximum bus speed is 2.5Gb/s, which limits eSATA 3Gb/s transfer speeds. The eSATA Hub clears this bottleneck, since Thunderbolt's 10Gb/s provides more than enough speed to accommodate 3Gb/s. Achieve the full speed potential of your eSATA drives.

Bring New Value to Your Storage

You already own eSATA drives, but can't connect them to your new Mac. The eSATA Hub modernizes your drives and puts them back to work. You don't have to buy new drives and scrap the old ones. eSATA and Thunderbolt connections are even software RAID compatible. Upgrade your storage with Thunderbolt technology.

Daisy Chain for Convenience

Thunderbolt technology supports daisy chaining, so you can connect a display or other Thunderbolt device to the eSATA Hub. This means you can connect, for example, your high-end LaCie 324i display and your eSATA Hub to your Mac via a single Thunderbolt cable. Thunderbolt technology also supports two channels - one dedicated for data, and the other for video - each with 10Gb/s of bandwidth. This means you can push and pull audio/video data without reducing bandwidth. Maximum convenience, minimum desktop clutter.

I'm a sound engineer, running my own little studio and this hub is a god-sent. We can hook up several drives and transfer project files in no time – the Thunderbolt speeds are just amazing. Now transferring files are a breeze and we can work even more efficiently. Really pleased with this product.

The hub is great! I have lots of data stored on several eSATA drives. Thanks to this hub, I'm able to copy files to my MacBook in much less time. The only downside is that the Thunderbolt cable must be purchased separately.
