Bundle: One External 2-Bay Enclosure & One 2-Port Internal, 2-Port External PCI-X Host Adapter

The SeriTek/2eVEN2+2 bundle includes one SeriTek/2EN2 External Dual-Bay Hot-Swap Enclosure and one SeriTek/1eVE2+2 Two-Port Internal, Two-Port External PCI-X Serial ATA Host Adapter.

The SeriTek/2EN2 is a rugged, dual-bay Serial ATA external hard drive enclosure. It provides versatile hot-swap capabilities with virtually unlimited storage possibilities in a small form-factor package. Built from the ground-up as a true Serial ATA solution, SeriTek/2EN2 features a case made of aluminum for maximum durability and heat dissipation.

The SeriTek/1eVE2+2 host adapter provides unparalled storage flexibility with two external Serial ATA ports and two internal Serial ATA ports. It is PCI-X compatible, permitting Power Mac G5 users to take advantage of the latest extended PCI technology while maintaining backward compatibility with older Power Macintosh systems.

Serial ATA Hard Drive Compatibility

Note: Some Hitachi Serial ATA hard drives are incompatible with the SeriTek/1eVE2+2 Host Adapter. This is due to a seldom-used Serial ATA feature called SSC, which is enabled on these hard drives. The SeriTek/1eVE2+2 does not support this feature. Newer model Hitachi Serial ATA hard drives should be compatible with SeriTek/1eVE2+2.

At this time, the following Hitachi Deskstar hard drives have the SSC feature disabled, and are compatible with the SeriTek/1eVE2+2 host adapter:

  • Model 7K500 (500GB) - Part Number HDS725050KLA360
  • Model 7K400 (400GB) - Part Numbers 0A30984 and 0A30985
  • Model 7K250 (250GB) - Part Number 0A30340
  • Model T7K250 (250GB) - Part Number HDT722525DLA380
  • Model 7K250 (160GB) - Part Number 0A30339
  • Model T7K250 (160GB) - Part Number HDT722516DLA380
  • Model 7K250 (120GB) - Part Number 0A30338
  • Model 7K250 (80GB) - Part Number 0A30337
  • Model 7K80 (80GB) - Part Number HDS728080PLA380
  • Model 7K80 (40GB) - Part Number HDS728040PLA320
Other Serial ATA hard drives from manufacturers such as Maxtor, Seagate, and Western Digital do not have this feature enabled by default and are therefore compatible.

Note: The bundled SeriTek/1eVE2+2 SATA PCI host adapter is not compatible with late 2005 G5 (11,2) Macintosh computers which utilize PCI-Express (PCIe) slots. The SeriTek/2ME4-E provides PCI-Express support for later systems, including the Mac Pro series.
Please note: This product is end-of-life and no longer orderable.
