DataTale SATAPro


The SATAPro 2.5-inch HDD Enclosure offers a solution for users that wish to use an external SATA solution for a notebook or home computer. The SATAPro 2.5-inch HDD Enclosure extends connection flexibility with one USB interface and two FireWire 400 port; thus, reducing device footprint while delivering exceptional performance and reliability for both Mac and PC users.

The rugged aluminum housing provides efficient heat dissipation while maintaining optimum HDD operation temperature, and impact protection while keeping your high RPM SATA hard drive safe from damages and drops.

The patented secure-fixing mechanism and anti-shock damper strips sustain HDD stability and the HDD spin down function ensures efficient operation. To automatically reduce power consumption, the hard disk inside the Enclosure spins down during sleep mode and automatically spins up when the host system is waken.

Host-provided bus power can be supplied by the DC Jack to USB Cable and eliminates the need for an AC adapter during travels. The easy-to-carry plus simple-to-install compacted Enclosure guarantees to have quick plug-n-play connection and immediate access for all your valuable data.
