WiebeTech Ships Serial ATA Dock

Device adapts IDE drives to Serial ATA By Dave Nagel
WiebeTech has introduced Serial ATA Dock, a new device that allows IDE drives to be attached to a host system via Serial ATA. It's available now for Macintosh and Windows systems.

The new Serial ATA Dock functions as a bridge between IDE drives and the Serial ATA ports found on recent computer models, including Apple's G5 line. The internal port connects to the IDE drive, while the external port hooks up via Serial ATA to the host system. WiebeTech says the device will function on G5 systems without any additional drivers and also supports Windows systems.

The Serial ATA Dock comes equipped with a 2-meter shielded Serial ATA cable and is available in three configurations:

  • Serial ATA Dock, $119.95;
  • Serial ATA Dock with power supply, $139.95;
  • Serial ATA Dock with power supply and PCI host adapter, $169.95.

All configurations are currently available. For more information, visit
