New Addonics CFast adapters add CFast cards to PCs

Addonics has announced a couple new ways to gets its CFast media integrated into your computer. The company has announced a couple new CFast adapters with one called the CFast HDD Adapter and the other called the SATA CFast adapter.

The difference between the two is that the HDD adapter is a direct replacement for a 2.5-inch SATA HDD allowing it to be installed inside most notebooks and desktop computers with optional mounting brackets. The SATA CFast adapter comes in two varieties.

The SATA unit can be had in the form of a PCI bracket that connects via a cable to your SATA ports on the mainboard of a desktop. You can also get a version of the SATA adapter that slips into the front of your PC case in a 3.5-inch drive bay. The benefit of either of these adapters is that Addonics claims read/write speeds of up to 600MB/s with its CFast media. The CFast cards are available in 8GB and 32GB and can be used as bootable drives. The 8GB CFast card is $98, the SATA CFast adapter is $23.95, and the CFast HDD adapter is $18.95.
