This eSATA Controller Card turns a PCI Express (1x) slot into an external SATA port, to provide a quick and hassle-free external storage solution.

Supporting SATA 300 (SATA II) hard drives (backward compatible with SATA /150) and data transfer rates of up to 3Gbps, this PCI Express eSATA Controller Card is the perfect solution for upgrading existing eSATA capability, or simply adding an external SATA port to a PC desktop computer.

Using a native PCI Express single chipset, the controller card provides enhanced compatibility, reliability and performance for your external storage needs. The controller card also features Port Multiplier support with command based switching for connecting multiple external hard drives to a host computer through one eSATA connection.

The PCI Express eSATA Controller Card also features an internal SATA port, which could be used for a conventional (internal) SATA drive installation. Please note that the internal SATA port can not be used at the same time as the external SATA port.

The StarTech.com Advantage
  • Switchable between an internal or external SATA port and port multiplier support for connecting multiple SATA devices over a single cable provides flexibility for most applications
  • 48-bit LBA supports hard drives larger than 137GB and a native single chipset design instead of a bridge chip leads to a robust, fast and reliable hardware solution
  • Backed by a StarTech.com lifetime warranty and free lifetime technical support
