Multiple Slots, Quick Input and Output
Sonnet’s Qio is a multi-tasking marvel. Qio reads from and writes to just about any memory card-P2, SxS, CompactFlash, SD, XD and more-at high speed. Dual P2, SxS, and CF slots enable you to offload files more efficiently, and the included Sonnet 21-in-1 Multimedia Memory Card adapter handles the remaining memory cards.
E4P SATA Host Controller Inside
Qio contains heart and circuitry of the acclaimed Sonnet Tempo SATA E4P SATA controller card. Four eSATA connectors on the back of Qio enable you to connect two Sonnet Fusion F2 portable 2-drive RAID SATA storage systems to easily copy files between them. Qio’s support of SATA port multipliers enables you to connect four drive enclosures like Sonnet’s Fusion D500P with access up to 20 drives!
Qio’s SxS slots double as ExpressCard/34 slots and the P2 slots are compatible with CardBus cards. If you’re a notebook user, this effectively quadruples the number of expansion card slots available to you. If you’re a desktop computer user, Qio enables you to swap adapter cards without cracking open the case. How is this possible? Qio connects to an included interface card that extends the PCIe bus outside your computer, and when used with a notebook, the USB bus is extended through the ExpressCard slot, too. Qio is available with either a PCIe adapter card for desktops or an ExpressCard/34 adapter for notebooks. Additional interface cards are available separately.
Travel and Desktop Companion
Qio is small-about the size of three stacked CD cases-and takes up so little space, you can use it just about anywhere. It’s rugged, too-with a robust aluminum case. No matter where you use it, Qio will quickly become an essential tool.
