Bundle: Two External 2-Bay Enclosures & One 4-Port Host Adapter

The SeriTek/1VEN2-2 bundle includes two SeriTek/1EN2 External Dual-Bay Hot-Swap Enclosures and one SeriTek/1VE4 Four-Port External PCI-X Serial ATA Host Adapter.

The SeriTek/1EN2 is a rugged, dual-bay Serial ATA external hard drive enclosure. It provides versatile hot-swap capabilities with virtually unlimited storage possibilities in a small form-factor package. Built from the ground-up as a true Serial ATA solution, SeriTek/1EN2 features a case made of aluminum for maximum durability and heat dissipation.

The SeriTek/1VE4 Host Adapter provides an easy and affordable way for Macintosh users to add inexpensive, high-speed storage. With four external shielded Serial ATA ports, each offering 1.5Gbits/sec performance, the SeriTek/1VE4 provides the high bandwidth to meet the needs of performance-hungry applications. The SeriTek/1VE4 is PCI-X compatible, permitting Power Mac G5 users to take advantage of the latest extended PCI technology while maintaining backward compatibility with older Power Macintosh systems.
