Addonics 6-Slot CF & CFast Drive Bays: Compact Platform for Compact Flash

 |  |  |  |  |  |  April 12, 2011

If you frequently use CF or CFast cards or have a bunch of them lying around unused, you should check out these CF & CFast drives from Addonics. Using these drives you can access up to 6 cards simultaneously, either as individual disks, as a single boot drive or a combination of both. There are also versions of both drives that are connected to a Hardware Port Multiplier (HPM), so you can have a variety of RAID set ups.

The drives will fit into the standard 5.25″ bays so you shouldn’t have a problem fitting them into your PC tower or rack. The picture above shows the CF and CFast drives with independent card slots, while the one below shows the drives with HPMs, which supportĀ RAID 0, 1, 3, 5, 10, JBOD, Clone Mode (N-Way Mirror) or a five drive setup.

You can order these drives directly from Addonics. The drives without HPMs sell for $135 (USD), while those that have HPMs sell for $199. Customization options are also available, including the option to order a drive with a combination of CF and CFast slots.
