Silverstone release SATA III and SAS dual-lane interface Hard Drive pad

/ 7 years ago

SilverStone have once again tried to create an innovative and flexible storage product, part of the Stackable Drive Series – SD01. This time it is a high-grade hard drive ‘pad’ with a screwless design that can connect to a PC via eSATA to SATA or eSATA/SATA to SAS interface.

To those not familiar with SAS it stands for ‘Serial Attached SCSI’ and is the upgrade from the old parallel SCSI that was first around in the 1980s. SAS does offer backwards-compatibility with second-generation SATA drives, for instance, SATA 3 Gbit/s drives may be connected to a SAS backplane, but not the other way round.

The SD01 can enable data transfer with maximum compatibility and stability, making it a great choice for not only taking important data on the go, but also a convenient and reliable home/office storage device.

Special Features:

  • Unique stackable design for easy upgrades and expansion.
  • Support SATA and SAS interface hard drive.
  • Maximum 6Gbits data transfer speed via SATA or SAS dual-lane interface.
  • Plug and Play & Hot-swappable connection.(system with AHCI mode)
  • The power source synchronizes with computer.
