Diamond ExDrive for SATA or SATA II or SATA III hard drive with eSATA and USB 3.0 / 2.0 interface NEW

The Diamond ExDrive Kit features the new generation of eSATA hard drive enclosures using native eSATA interface for the highest performance possible today through an externally connected hard drive enclosure. Designed for accommodating any standard 3.5" SATA / SATAII or IDE hard drive, the Diamond ExDrive, that can connect to computers via high speed eSATA or USB 3.0, provides data transfer speeds almost four times the maximum throughput of traditional drive enclosures. When connected via eSATA interface, drives contained inside the durable and heat resistant Diamond enclosures are even capable of booting Operating Systems through a compatible eSATA port on a motherboard or add-in card. The drive enclosure is also designed to accomodate any 3.5" or 2.5" hard drive.

The Diamond ExDrive Kit is the ideal external drive solution for large capacity data storage requirements. With size slightly larger than a VCR cassette, the Diamond drive enclosure comes with Addonics SATA direct interface design that provides an eSATA connector for high speed eSATA connection, as well as an additional SATA connector on the back. This SATA connector allows the Diamond drive enclosure to be used as a removable cartridge via an optional Diamond drive cradle installed inside the 5 1/4" drive bay of any computer.
