A fast 6Gb/s SATA PCI Express adapter card that enables you to attach readily available 2.5" SSDs and install the assembly neatly into a single PCIe slot, no cables or drivers necessary.
(SSD's Not Included)

Unlike other PCI Express SSD cards, Tempo SSD uses standard 2.5" SATA drives. You get to select from the widest variety of SSDs, and buy the ones that best suit your capacity and performance needs while working within your budget. Because 2.5" SSDs are readily available, you’re not tied to one retailer or SSD manufacturer should you decide to upgrade to higher capacity, faster SSDs.


  • Mounts one or two high-performance 6 Gb/s SSDs (sold separately) in your Mac Pro's, desktop PC's, or Thunderbolt expansion chassis' PCIe slot
  • PCI Express 2.0 x2 host bus interface for high-performance applications
  • Data transfers speeds up to 660 MB/sec
  • The Unique modular design enables installation of a single SSD in half length card spaces, two SSDs in full length card space when extension plate is attached to the card
  • Perfect for use in Sonnet's Echo Express SEIII Thunderbolt expansion products
  • Supports OS X and Windows RAID features
  • No drivers required
