High-Speed, High-Bandwidth Ports for Fast Data Transfers
Do you work with files stored on external hard drives? You may not be getting the maximum performance from them. Many drive enclosures feature a FireWire 800 (1394b) interface, which provides up to twice the data transfer speeds and bandwidth of FireWire 400 (1394a), both critical attributes when working with multimedia applications. Don’t settle for a slower connection and less than maximum performance; get a Sonnet Allegro™ FW800 FireWire 800 adapter card to take advantage of the extra speed FireWire 800 offers!
