SATA-5PM-2ME4 External Enclosure with 4-Port PCI-Express Host Adapter Bundle

The SeriTek/5PM-2ME4 bundle includes the SeriTek/5PM five-bay hot-swap enclosure, and one SeriTek/2ME4-E 4-Port Port Multiplier eSATA PCI-Express Host Adapter

The SeriTek/5PM five-bay hot-swap enclosure provides a high quality SATA port multiplier (PM) enclosure design that delivers unprecedented performance and durability. This new SATA PM enclosure utilizes an innovative backplane design with no internal cabling which helps to reduce EMI. It supports all Serial ATA hard drives including the newest 1TB drives with 3.0Gbps transfer rates as well as original 1.5Gbps Serial ATA hard drives.

The SeriTek/2ME4-E port-multiplier host adapter is compatible with all Apple Mac Pro computers and the late 2005 PowerMac G5 (11,2) model with an available PCI-Express slot. Mac OS X 10.6.x (Snow Leopard) 32-bit and 64-bit modes are supported with direct connect enclosures like the SeriTek/2eEN4 and port multiplier enclosures like the SeriTek/5PM. In addition, the FirmTek driver is backward compatible with Mac OS X 10.4.6 and higher. The new FirmTek 64-bit SeriTek/2ME4-E driver is built from the ground up to support the latest Snow Leopard features while also providing backward compatibility for earlier versions of Mac OS X.
