High-Speed, High-Bandwidth Ports for Notebooks
Sonnet’s FireWire 800 Pro ExpressCard/34 provides you the ability to connect the fastest FireWire® multimedia peripherals to your MacBook Pro or Windows notebook computer with an ExpressCard slot. Do you work with files stored on external hard drives? You may not be getting the maximum performance from them. Many drive enclosures include 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 FireWire 800 Pro ExpressCard/34 adapter to add the FireWire 800 ports you need!
