Sonnet Tempo SSD and Tempo SSD Pro
6Gb/s SATA PCI EXPRESS 2.5" SSD CARDS - ADD YOUR OWN SSDs

Simple SSD Upgrade Solutions
If you’ve been thinking about fast, bootable storage, you’ve read the stories and seen the reviews; SSDs are hot right now. Not only do they offer tremendous performance and easily outperform hard disk drives, they are more reliable, their prices are dropping and you can get more capacity than ever. If you’ve got a Mac Pro® or older Windows® desktop computer, you could just get a couple of 2.5” SSDs (plus necessary adapters) and install them in some empty drive bays (if there are any) and be done with it—but the 3Gb/s SATA interface in your computer won’t support fast 6Gb/s SSDs at full speed. You could also get a 6Gb/s eSATA adapter plus external mount SSD storage, but they come with the excess baggage of power adapters and cable clutter. Sonnet engineered a great alternative—Tempo™ SSD. It's a fast 6Gb/s SATA PCI Express adapter card that enables you to attach readily available 2.5" SSDs and install the assembly neatly into a single PCIe slot, no cables or drivers necessary. Unlike other PCI Express SSD cards that rely on proprietary, premium priced SSD modules, Tempo SSD uses standard 2.5" SATA drives that you choose. You get to select from the widest variety of SSDs, and buy the ones that best suit your capacity and performance needs while working within your budget. Because 2.5" SSDs are readily available, you’re not tied to one retailer or SSD manufacturer should you decide to upgrade to higher capacity, faster SSDs. Tempo SSD Key Features
Mounts one or two high-performance 6 Gb/s SSDs (sold separately) in your Mac Pro's, desktop PC's, or Thunderbolt expansion chassis' PCIe slot
PCI Express 2.0 x2 host bus interface for high-performance applications
Great performance with data transfers speeds up to 660 MB/sec
Unique modular design enables installation of a single SSD in half length card spaces, two SSDs in full length card space when extension plate is attached to the card
Optimized for maximum performance over Thunderbolt—perfect for use in Sonnet's Echo Express and xMac mini Server Thunderbolt expansion products
Supports OS X and Windows RAID features
Supports booting from attached drives under OS X or Windows 7 and 8 (see Tech Specs for details).
AHCI compliant—no drivers required
Supports S.M.A.R.T. data reporting Connecting SSDs and Extension PlateStart with one SSDAttach Extension PlateThen add second SSD
A Card with Room to Grow
Tempo SSD features a unique modular design that grows with your needs. Out of the box, this Sonnet solution is a half-length, full-height card to which you attach one SSD. It’s small enough to fit in most spaces, perfect for installing a single SSD into your system. With the included extension plate attached, the Tempo SSD is transformed into a full-length card to which you can install an additional SSD. Adding the second SSD allows you to improve performance or data security by exploiting OS X® or Windows® RAID features. This card uses a fast 6 Gb/s SATA controller chipset and PCIe 2.0 x2 interface to deliver read speeds up to 660 MB/s from a pair of SSDs configured as a RAID 0 set. AHCI compliance ensures installation of the card is simple—attach your SSDs with provided screws, mount the card in an available PCIe slot, and turn on your computer—the necessary drivers are installed automatically. Drive health monitoring is supported through S.M.A.R.T. data reporting. Add More to the Plate: The included extension plate allows you to add a second SSD to expand your storage needs. Thunderbolt™ Port? Instant SSD Solution
Got a Thunderbolt connection, but no PCIe slot? Tempo SSD Pro is ideal for use in Sonnet's Echo™ Express Pro Thunderbolt™ Expansion Chassis for PCIe Cards or the xMac™ mini Server PCIe 2.0 expansion system/1U rackmount enclosure for Mac mini with Thunderbolt ports—the combo enables you to add high-speed SSDs to iMac®, Mac® mini, MacBook® Air, and MacBook Pro computers! Add High-Speed SSD Drives to Your Thunderbolt Equipped Mac: Install SSD drives onto a Tempo SSD Pro and install the card into a Sonnet Echo Express Pro chassis for super fast access to all your data.

Sonnet Tempo SSD TSATA6 SSD E2 reviews


16/10/2014 | | IT Flag |
Molto buona, ma ogni volta devo reinstallare il firmware perché faccia il boot.
01/02/2013 | Alex | GB Flag |
If two SSD's are put onto the Sonnet Tempo SSD card are they viewed as seperate drives within windows or a single volume?
Do the two drives need to be the same size? I.e. can a 240Gb drive and a 120Gb drive be used?
Hi Alex,
Thank you for your enquiry.
the unit is not RAID based so the drives would be seen seperately and any RAID is done within the OS if required.
the PDF states that the unit has "dual SATA controllers which again indicates that you can mix and match your drives as they are entirely seperate though mounted on the same board.
