The Diamond ExDrive Kit features the 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" IDE hard drive, the Diamond ExDrive provides data transfer speeds approximately three times the maximum throughput of traditional drive enclosures utilizing the standard USB or FireWire interfaces. 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 Diamond ExDrive Kit is the ideal external drive solution for large capacity data storage requirements. When connected to Host Controllers with RAID capability, multiple Diamond ExDrives can be implemented with fault-tolerance and increased data throughput RAID configurations which can be easily relocated as external devices. 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 interface, as well as an additional SATA connector on the back.
