Macpower Releases a New Dual Interface 3.5" SATA Enclosure – PD-SATA 400+ 2008/05/30

Macpower, industry leading manufacturer of external storage enclosures, media players, and digital signage solutions, today releases the latest member of the very popular Pleiades storage enclosure line – PD-SATA 400+. Well known for it's slim, aluminium design, the PD-SATA 400+ comes equipped with both high speed USB 2.0 and Firewire 400 interfaces.

Powered by an Oxford 934SSA chipset, this enclosure allows data to be transferred to and from any installed 3.5” SATA hard drive via a USB 2.0 or Firewire 400 connection. A dual interface enclosure provides the added flexibility to use this device at any workstation.

"All PCs and Macs are equipped with USB 2.0, and more and more PCs with Firewire 400," Macpower President Tommy Chen explained. "The USB 2.0 High Speed certified PD-SATA 400+ is the perfect all around storage solution for both!"

The Pleiades' all aluminium frame is perfect for dissipating heat away from the hard drive, and a ventilated front grill not only adds to its appealing design, but also assists in greater air circulation to internal components. Its slim body is essential for those that need extra data storage, but can't compromise on space around their computer.

"The storage industry is increasingly becoming more and more competitive." comments Mr. Chen. "However, practical functions and a very classic metallic-look continue to keep the Pleiades popular among end users."

The all new PD-SATA 400+ is available now at Macpower partners worldwide. It will also be available for OEM projects, and Macpower welcomes any requests from OEM partners.
