Macpower Releases a New Dual Interface 2.5" SATA Enclosure – DC-SATA 400+ 2008/02/04

Macpower, industry leading manufacturer of external storage enclosures, media players, and digital signage solutions, today releases it's latest 2.5" SATA enclosure – DC-SATA 400+. Still built in a slim, aluminium casing, this latest member of the DC-SATA family incorporates both high speed USB 2.0 and Firewire 400 interfaces.

Powered by an Oxford 934SSA chipset, users can transfer data to any connected 2.5" SATA hard drive via a high-speed USB 2.0 or Firewire 400 interface. The DC-SATA comes with a convenient rear on/off switch and a front LED to indicate when the unit is on and when it is transferring data.

"USB is used everywhere, and most new laptops are being equipped with Firewire access too," Macpower President Tommy Chen explained. "The DC-SATA 400+ is the perfect travel companion for your laptop, providing that extra storage space.”

The DC-SATA 400+'s ultra compact casing is the ideal design for those looking to take their data "on-the-go". An all aluminium casing dissipates heat away from the hard drive, plus its shiny metal finish will match any workstation or laptop.

"An aluminium exterior looks great plus keeps the hard drive cool during hours of operation," comments Mr. Chen. "The DC-SATA offers both the practical functions and aesthetic appeal end users are looking for.

The all new DC-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.
