Both solutions ensure maximum performance from mSATA or CFast media to simplify the task of transporting files from digital cameras, mobile devices, notebook and desktop PCs at read/write speeds of 5,000 mbps (USB 3.0) or 6,000 mbps (SATA/eSATA)
The Addonics External Reader/Writer comes bundled with mSATA and CFast adapters. The adapters convert the mSATA or the CFast media into a 1.8" micro SATA storage device that can be inserted into the open slot of the Reader/Writer. Designed to be powered directly from the USB port or eSATA/USB combo ports, the Reader/Writer connects to any system via eSATA or USB 3.0 and is plug-n-play with no software drivers to install.
The Addonics Internal Reader/Writer mounts directly in the 3.5" drive bay of any system and connects via the SATA port or SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port.
Like the external version, the Internal Reader/Writer comes bundled with two adapters for the mSATA SSD and CFast card and converts the mSATA or the CFast media into a 1.8" micro SATA SSD that can be inserted into the open slot of the reader/writer. A model with two slots is also available to accommodate two media onto the same drive bay.
With the optional micro SATA-CF adapter, these readers/writers can also be used to read write to standard CF media. A 1.8" micro SATA SSD or hard drive can also be directly inserted into the device slot.
The Internal and External mSATA SSD / CFast card Reader/Writer are operating system independent when connecting via a SATA interface. With a USB connection, the devices support most flavors of Windows, Mac OS X and above, and Linux kernel 2.4.
MSRP starts at $55 for the single slot internal model with SATA interface. Visit http://addonics.com/
