Introducing the JMR Lighting Thunderbolt-certified Thunderbolt-2 to PCI-e expander products

Since our company’s inception over thirty years ago, we at JMR Electronics have always strived to create cutting edge computer hardware and storage devices that were both highly sophisticated and consumer-priced. Following this tradition of enabling all users to have access to cutting edge products, we are pleased to announce that our JMR Lightning, Dual Spot Expander, and Quad Slot Expanders are the newest products on the market to be fully Thunderbolt-certified, Intel-approved, and Apple-approved. Our expanders enable your computer to have easy access to between one and four PCI-e cards, as well as up to eight hard drives in RAID formation. Utilizing the Lightning Expander products, you can instantly transform your laptop or desktop into a portable, powerful workstation capable of rivaling or even edging out heavy, unwieldy, stationary systems.

 

How our JMR Lightning expanders work

How our Lightning expanders work is simple. To use any of them, all you must do is plug the Lightning expander’s Thunderbolt 2 cables into your computer’s Thunderbolt 2 ports, and plug the Lightning Expander’s power cable into a traditional power source. Depending on which expander you use, you will enjoy a different range of features.
