The world’s first truly portable high-speed drive name is Elgato Thunderbolt SSD and this drive is powered by Thunderbolt technology. Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is the first specifically made for Macs and it can only work with Macs. It is also a bus powered portable drive on the market and its price start from $699.95 for 240GB and $429.95 for 120GB.
Before Elgato started working on what became the most advanced TV and video solutions for the Mac, we were part of the revolution of innovative storage technology. The vast majority of FireWire drives contained Elgato software and even early flash-based products were powered by Elgato.
Over a decade later, we were thrilled when Thunderbolt was introduced. So we decided to go back to our roots and create what we have always been longing for: a truly portable, ultra-fast external drive.
Elgato Thunderbolt 240 GB Solid State Drive is available at Amazon for $699.95
The Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is the fastest single-drive storage solution for your Mac. Using a Solid State Drive (SSD), it dramatically outperforms state-of-the-art portable FireWire or USB drives.
While you’re on the go, less is more. That’s why the Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is engineered to draw power directly through the Thunderbolt port, without needing a separate power supply. This way, your data is always there with you, even when you’re not near a power source.
A safe bet
Due to the lack of moving, mechanical parts, Solid State Drives are far less prone to accidental damage than traditional hard drives. Even better, the Elgato Thunderbolt SSD uses a rock-solid metal enclosure, guaranteeing not only good looks but also added protection for your valuable data.
Quieter than a whisper
The Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is designed to work without the need for a noisy fan. With its advanced enclosure and the inaudible Solid State Drive, that means you’ll never hear a sound, despite its constantly screaming performance.
