The SeriTek/1SEN2 bundle includes the SeriTek/1EN2 External Dual-Bay Hot-Swap Enclosure and the SeriTek/1SE2 Two-Port External Serial ATA Adapter.
The SeriTek/1EN2 is a rugged, dual-bay Serial ATA (SATA) 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/1EN2 features a case made of aluminum for maximum durability and heat dissipation.
The SeriTek/1SE2 Host Adapter extends Serial ATA's 1.5Gbits/sec performance to the outside of the Macintosh computer chassis, enabling users to take advantage of external Serial ATA enclosures such as the SeriTek/1EN2. With two external ports, the SeriTek/1SE2 provides the high bandwidth necessary to meet the needs of performance-hungry applications while offering hot-swap flexibility similar to that of Universal Serial Bus (USB) and FireWire.
