Manufacturer: Addonics
MFR Part #: ADSA3GPX1-2E
Condition: New
Packaging: Retail


This new family of PCI Express controllers offer the latest 3G/sec SATA performance and configuration flexibility at an amazingly affordable price. Comes with choice of 2 internal SATA II ports or 2 eSATA II ports for external SATA connection. both controllers can also be installed in low profile PCs using the bundled low profile bracket. The two ports can be configured as individual ports, as RAID 1, 0, 0+1, RAID 5 or JBOD. Both controllers are also Port Multiplier compatible, thus offering potential expansion capability and new storage solutions

  • Choice of controller with 2 internal SATA II ports or 2 eSATA ports
    Install into both standard height or low profile system.
    Install in PCI-Express BUS
    Fully compliant with SATA II and SATA 1.0 standard
    Maximum 3Gbits/sec per port
    Support NCQ commands
    Compatibility with Port Multiplier
    Silicon Image chip set SiI 3132
    Use as a non-RAID or RAID controller

    Built-in RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 1+0, RAID5 and JBOD support
    (illustration on the left is the bundled RAID utility for Windows OS. RAID5 and JBOD requires Port Multiplier)

    *Note: It is common in RAID5 configuration that the WRITE speed performs slower than READ. Depending on system hardware, the WRITE performance can drop to 25% of the READ speed. This performance difference does not affect general database application where majority of the transations are READ commands. For applications that require large files transfer or continuous writing of data on the the hard drive such as video editing, RAID5 configuration may not be desirable.

    * Hot swapping hard drive has been tested on Windows OS only. When drives are configured as RAID 0 and certain RAID combination, the removal of the hard drive will result in breaking the RAID set and result in data loss.

    Since the eSATA connector on this adapter is new to the market, connecting cable with this new connector may not be readily available. Addonics offers a complete cabling solution for External SATA applications. All Addonics external SATA cables are constructed with metal clips on the connectors for reliable repetitive insertion and tighter connection needed for external application. These cables are also heavily shield and wired to increase EMI protection and ensure SATA signal integrity in external application over a 2 meter distance.

    Option 1: External SATA (eSATA) - SATA converter cable (model AASA2SAP15C, 15 cm.) plus External SATA data cable (model AASAEDC3F, 100 cm.)

    The 15 cm. cable (AASA2SAP15C) converts the new eSATA connector back to standard SATA External connector plug. Together with the standard 100 cm. External SATA cable (AASAEDC3F), SATA storage device can then be connected to this controller. This combination gives the flexibility of connecting any external SATA device , to this CardBus eSATA adapter or *PVR/Set Top Box to the standard SATA ports that are commonly found in most of today's SATA equipped systems.

    Option 2: eSATA - SATA cable (AASA2SA100C, 100 cm.)

    One end of this this cable has the new eSATA connector for connecting to this 4-Port External SATA controller, *PVR or Set Top Box. The opposite end has the the current standard SATA connector for connecting to SATA hard drive or other Addonics external SATA storage devices.

    *At the present time, some PVRs (a few models from TiVo) and Set Top Boxes are equipped with this new eSATA connector.
