WiebeTech on Wednesday has introduced two new dual-bay external hard disk drives as part of its
SilverSATA product line — the SilverSATA II FH, featuring dual FireWire 800 ports, and the SilverSATA II SJ, which uses external Serial ATA (eSATA) interfaces. They’re available starting at $299.95 and $249.95, respectively.
The SilverSATA II FH touts dual FireWire 800 ports, a single FireWire 400 port and USB 2.0. It can be configured either as a RAID Level 0 (striping) system or JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks). The SilverSATA II SJ has two independent eSATA connections, to attach to a Power Mac or Mac Pro equipped with an eSATA controller card.
Each drive holds two 3.5-inch SATA drives, with up to 750GB capacity each, for a total of 1.5GB (unformatted). The drives are mounted in trays which are removable and interchangeable with other SilverSATA models.
