FirmTek today unveiled at NAB 2006 their new SeriTek/2SM2-E, a Serial ATA ExpressCard host adapter. The SeriTek/2SM2-E extends SATA’s performance beyond the desktop, enabling content producers to capture, develop, edit and create content in almost any environment when using Apple’s new MacBook Pro notebook computers. With transfer rates up to 3 gigabits per second per port, FirmTek’s hot-swap compatibility also makes it easy for users to move entire drives and arrays from the MacBook Pro to any FirmTek-equipped desktop system in seconds, notes the company. The SeriTek/2SM2-E ExpressCard adapter will be available early Q3 this year, with estimated retail pricing of US$119.95.
