Overview

The ECESATA254F Flush Mount 2-Port eSATA ExpressCard Adapter uses a unique slim 54mm form factor design that allows it to sit fully in a standard laptop ExpressCard/54 slot without sticking out. When installed, the ports sit flush with the sides of the laptop, creating a seamless add-on that can be left installed at all times, without fear that it or the card slot will be damaged due to snagging or impact.

The eSATA ExpressCard adapter features 2 independent eSATA ports, and is compatible with the latest high capacity SATA drives (SATA I, SATA II) with support for data transfer speeds up to 3 Gbps.

With support for Port Multiplier technology and hot-swap installation, the eSATA ExpressCard allows compatible multi-drive enclosures to be connected over a single eSATA cable, and devices can be connected and disconnected without having to reboot the system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

Although you can adapt a Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) drive to connect to a standard SATA controller card, the card must support SAS commands in order to communicate with SAS drives. SAS drives have a different command set that is not present on SATA controllers.

This SATA controller card only supports standard SATA drives.

This device does not support the ATA Packet Interface (ATAPI) protocol. ATAPI is required for optical drives, including CD-ROM drives, DVD-ROM drives, and Blu-ray players. Because this device does not support ATAPI, optical drives are also not supported over any IDE, SATA, or eSATA connections.

For a list of products that do support ATAPI, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/hard_drive_controllers_atapi_support.
