Magma ExpressBox1 Pro EB1F – No Longer Available

One-slot PCI Express for 12.283” or shorter cards

Product Description

Magma ExpressBox1 Pro (EB1F) is an easy-to-use external expansion device for attaching a PCI Express® card to a laptop or desktop computer.

In a mobile environment, ExpressBox1 allows a user to combine the power of a desktop and the mobility of a laptop into a powerful, flexible, mobile workstation. For example, a user can turn a typical, middle-of-the-road laptop into a powerful gaming computer, a scientific computer, or an audio/video editing workstation simply by adding the right PCI Express card to ExpressBox1 and then connecting it to a laptop through an ExpressCard/34 module and cable.

In the desktop computers and servers, ExpressBox1 allows a user to move half-length, heat-generating, or power hungry PCI Express cards outside the computer by providing dedicated power and cooling in an external enclosure.  ExpressBox1 is ideal for attaching full-length PCI Express cards to low-profile computers that have limited space. The connection to the host computer is through a PCI Express host card and cable.  

Zero latency, 2000Mb/sec, Faster than USB and Firewire
Based on new PCI Express® technology, ExpressBox1 provides a zero latency connectivity solution with a theoretical maximum throughput of 2000Mb/sec (or 250 MB/sec) each direction... That's 2.5 times faster than Firewire 800 and 4.1 times the speed of USB 2.0!

Magma ExpressBox1 weighs only 2.8 pounds and supports single width cards up to 6.604 inches long (EB1H) or 12.83 inches (EB1F).

I would like to thank VK for the wonderful sales assistance, service and prices. This was my first purchase with you and it won't be my last. I only wish I'd discovered you years ago!

I had two Grammy wins this year - Ray LaMontagne & Carolina Chocolate Drops. Both made with help from Vintage King!

In almost 20 years in Pro audio buying, never did I receive a unit so well packed and exactly as described. Works flawlessly. The whole process has been so smooth. I will never hesitate to do business with you guys in the future and will recommend you to everyone I know.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
