    ATTO Technology H680 reviews

    ExpressSAS H680 6 Gb/s SAS/SATA to PCIe 2.0 Host Bus Adapter is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product for Mac Pro I use this HBA to connect an LTO-5 tape drive and several eSata drives and RAID enclosures to my Mac Pro without a problem. Using this with an HP tape drive and Bru backup software (Bru Producers edition) is the way to go if you want both SAS/eSata connectivity and reliable backup solutions for your Mac Pro while sacrificing only 1 PCIe slot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compatibility Mac OS X and Tandberg LTO4 I installed the Atto Controller as documented in our Mac PRO Server, theExpressSAS H680 driver, connect the Tandberg Data SAS LTO-4 tape drive, then reboot and start the backup software. No glitch. I just had to select the new drive and the LTO was ready to be used. Our version of Mac OS X Server was 10.6.7 The performance are great...

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works I use this in a mac pro for Codex download stations and also with a fanout cable to esata devices. Works great. Mounts RED media via red readers faster than any other host card I've used.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly What I Needed Apple took a wrong turn several years ago in the design of their MacPro desktops. Adding this card to my 2010 MacPro lets me connect to LTO SAS high performance tape drives. Card works like a charm. Thanks to B&H for stocking this (and ATTO for making and providing Mac drivers).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great & Fast Use to connect Mac Pros with tape library and disk array. Easy to install, haven't had any trouble and is very fast.
