Attach two eSATA enclosures to a single eSATA Hub for newfound speed and performance. For enhanced storage capacity, daisy chain additional eSATA Hubs to attach all your eSATA enclosures. Ideal for professionals that have invested heavily in eSATA disks, the eSATA Hub helps you repurpose and future-proof existing storage. Video editors, graphic artists, and photographers can get the most from their current hard drives thanks to the incredible throughput offered by the LaCie eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series. Further, eSATA can now be used with all next generation Macintosh computers that support Thunderbolt technology, including MacBook Pros, MacBook Airs, and iMacs.
