Sonnet Technologies Inc. has announced the
G5 Jive, an internal hard disk mounting system that enables Power Mac G5 users to add up to three more Serial ATA (SATA) hard disk drives to their system, internally. The G5 Jive costs US$99.95 and will ship this month, according to the company.
The Power Mac G5 can ordinarily accommodate two internal hard drives. The G5 Jive consists of a custom metal base place and mounting bracket, mounting screws, three internal SATA data cables and a custom-designed power cable. It mounts “in the bottom of the case beneath the optical drive,” and Sonnet claims it has no impact on the Power Mac G5’s PCI slots and adapter cards.
