Default OWC announces 4 slot PCIe to Thunderbolt Chassis

At NAB, OWC has announced that they will be coming out with a 4 slot PCIe to Thunderbolt adapter, which is great news, as they seem to do everything with very good quality. And it's nice to have yet another brand to choose from, in addition to Magma and Sonnet.

However, they have no pricing or availability yet, just a brief description and a picture. They do say it will be sometime in 2012. Info is on the blog page (scroll down a bit):

Also, they are now shipping their previously announced PCIe based SSD drive chips, which is another nifty product, that allows SSD storage right on a PCIe card. Looking at the prices, it doesn't seem to be much more than the same size SSD's in an external enclosure, plus you get speeds faster than 6G. Info and pricing is here:

It is a single slot chassis at 4x.

It seems to be a rebranded mLogic mLink. Most of OWC's stuff is rebranded, and I am not saying it isn't good quality, but they usually charge a premium for the product. They have great service and on some items good prices.

Woops! I thought that looked a little skinny for 4 slots.

I did not know about the M Logic one. It has a price of $399, which is also attractive. I wonder if OWC will make any improvements.

looks like it won't take a full length card, that's inconvenient

Full height, half length. Good for most disk controllers, which is probably the aim.
