PRESS RELEASE: PNY Technologies Introduces Range Of I/O SATA Cards For Desktop And Notebook Computers
PARSIPPANY, NJ - November 1, 2007 - PNY Technologies, Inc. today announced a full line of I/O SATA cards for desktop and notebook computers as the company continues to expand their product line for solutions in and around the computer. The cards provide an affordable solution for adding high performance SATA, SATA II and eSATA connectivity to the user's PC.
Desktop users will benefit from either the new PCI Express interface or the legacy PCI form factor, while notebook users can choose between the new ExpressCard interface or the legacy CardBus form factor. These advances in I/O Connectivity effectively increase the amount of available computing and I/O bandwidth, resulting in faster music downloads, smoother streaming video, and lighting-fast access to mass storage devices. All the cards benefit from PNY's simple plug-and-play installation as well as support the latest Windows Vista operating system. Moreover, PNY's desktop cards support RAID functionality, while its notebook cards have dual, external ports for even more flexible connectivity.
"Desktop and notebook users are continuously looking for ways to increase efficiency while they work," said Kevin Cahill, director of marketing for PNY Technologies. "SATA provides an affordable solution for faster data transfers, the ability to remove and attach hard drives while operating, as well as more reliable data integrity. PNY's SATA offering satisfies a wide range of users, from those who want to upgrade to the latest advance in desktop data storage as well as those who want to take advantage of the additional bandwidth and ability to upgrade for many years to come."
