Your Connection to the Outside

Tempo™ eSATA data cables don't compromise—why should you? When using an eSATA Serial ATA host controller and connecting external drive enclosures, you need Tempo eSATA data cables! Unlike thin, internal SATA data cables, these cables offer superior shielding and connectors with metal contacts to provide enhanced EMI protection and improved durability required for external use. These cables adhere to the design specifications recommended by the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO), and are built to last.
