Sonnet Technologies has announced the Echo Express SE 10 Gigabit Ethernet Thunderbolt Adapter and the Echo Express SE eSATA Pro 4-Port Thunderbolt Adapter.
These new adapters pair Sonnet's just-released Echo Express SE Thunderbolt Expansion Chassis for PCIe cards with either a Sonnet Pro one-port 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) adapter card or four-port 6Gb eSATA adapter card, respectively, in value-priced bundles that provide high-speed data and storage interfaces to iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro computers with a Thunderbolt port.
Each Echo Express SE value bundle comes with its adapter card pre-installed, so physical setup is as simple as connecting the external power supply plus necessary interface cables among the Echo Express SE chassis, computer, and data or storage devices. Dual Thunderbolt ports support daisy-chaining of devices, and an automatic temperature-controlled fan quietly cools the installed card. Each Echo adapter conserves energy by powering on/off when the computer to which it is connected powers on/off or wakes/sleeps.
The Echo Express SE 10GbE and the Echo Express SE eSATA Pro 4-Port are now available for US$999 and US$599, respectively.
