Be Careful When Buying for a Mac Pro Computer
on March 19, 2009
I originally installed the Tempo Sata E2P Pcie Card with 2 External Esata ports in slot 2 of my new Mac Pro (Early 2008) computer. It did not work! By reading and calling the company, I learned that it will only work in slots 3 or 4. I switched a USB Pcie card with it. The USB card works in slot 2 just fine and the eSATA card works in slot 3. The eSATA card connects a short eSATA cable to a LaCie 500GB external hard drive to use with the Mac Pro's Time Machine backup system.
The LaCie was so easy to setup with the Mac. It asks if you want to use the Time Machine with it.
I also learned that this card will NOT work at all in the NEW 2009 Mac Pro.
