Elgato has unveiled Thunderbolt Drive+, a fast and ultra-portable SSD that features Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 support.
By combining server-grade Plextor SSD technology, bus-powered operation, and a rock-solid metal enclosure, Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ outperforms other external drives without compromising on mobility.
Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ utilises a Solid State Drive (SSD) to store data at transfer speeds of up to 420 MB/s, dramatically outperforming other portable drives. It relies on Plextor True Speed technology and server-grade controller chips to guarantee sustained high performance. High-quality flash chips and custom firmware provide the lowest average annualised failure rate (AFR) in the industry.
The perfect storage solution when you’re on the go
Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ is engineered to draw power directly from a single Thunderbolt or USB port. This way, users can always access their data, even when they’re not near a power source. The backward compatible USB 3.0 port ensures that Thunderbolt Drive+ works with virtually any Mac or PC.
Due to its metal enclosure and lack of moving mechanical parts, Thunderbolt Drive+ is far less prone to accidental damage than traditional external drives. No dust particle can reach the inside, and even splashes of liquid won’t damage your files.
