Sonnet - Qio PCIe Universal Media Reader - QIO-PCIE
Sonnet's Qio (pronounced Cue-Eye-Oh) PCIe Universal Media Reader, the QIO-PCIE, is now available from TapeOnline.com. Sonnet's QIO-PCIE can read/write to SDHC, SDXC, Compact Flash, P2, and SxS cards, as well as any storage system with an eSATA interface.
This Qio Universal Card reader eliminates the need for multiple standalone card readers, and easily allows you to transfer data across cards, an attached hard drive, or host computer.
The four eSATA connectors on the back of the Qio Universal Card reader make it possible to attach 2 Sonnet F2 Fusion Storage Systems so you can easily transfer data between them. The Qio's support of port multipliers and integrated hardware RAID controllers enable you to connect up to four different drive enclosures (like Sonnet's D400QR5), allowing you access to 16 eSATA drives. Qio's SxS card slots double as ExpressCard/34 slots, and the P2 slots are compatible with CardBus cards. In a notebook computer, this essentially sextuples the number of ports. In a desktop computer, you can swap cards without having to access the desktop's hardware. The PCIe bus is extended outside of the computer, so you can utilize WiFi, Firewire, USB, and more without removing the desktop enclosure. The Qio ships with a PCIe Bus Extender.
The Qio is very small (5.9" x 6.2" x 1.2"), so you can transport it easily. Included with this Qio is a 12V AC Power supply that will power the Qio and 2 attached Sonnet F2 Fusion storage systems.
