Experience a Mass Storage Innovation on Your PC!

Fill your system with three interface technologies without loading up your PCI slots! The Sonnet Tempo™ Trio combines the parallel ATA drive interface and high-speed peripheral connections in one, simple-to-install card. Plug the Trio into a PCI slot, connect your drives, hot-plug the latest digital devices—you've created your own digital hub.

Expand your data storage capacity economically by connecting up to four big, fast internal ATA hard drives to the Trio—this is an easy way to improve your system's performance. If you've never opened your computer, don't worry—installing drives is easier than you might think. We even include one Ultra ATA cable (for two drives) and drive mounting screws to simplify the installation process. Just choose the drive(s) to fit your needs—you can use ATA/33, ATA/66, ATA/100, or ATA/133 drives—the Trio can handle them all.

Plug in the latest digital devices—DV camcorders, digital cameras, external drives, MP3 players, and more—to the individually powered ports to improve your peripheral vision!! The Trio supports FireWire, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1, so you can choose from a vast array of gadgets and tools to connect to your system.
