Choosing an external drive is harder than it should be. But why should you have to choose between convenience, data protection and good looks? Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ unites the most advanced storage technology in a revolutionary high-speed solution.
Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ utilizes a Solid State Drive (SSD) to store your data, dramatically outperforming other portable drives. With transfer speeds up to 420 MB/s, it’s a worthy companion for your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro or Ultrabook with built-in flash storage.
While you’re on the go, less is more. That’s why Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ is engineered to draw power directly from a single Thunderbolt or USB 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.
Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ features both the most advanced and the most common connectivity standards to make sure you can always access your files. With Thunderbolt™ technology, you’re all set for the future of high performance interfaces. Meanwhile, the backward compatible USB 3.0 port ensures that you can connect Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ to virtually any computer that you need. No matter whether it’s a Mac or a PC running Windows.
Due to the lack of moving, mechanical parts, Solid State Drives are far less prone to accidental damage than traditional hard drives. But Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ doesn’t just use any SSD: with Plextor True Speed technology, server-grade controller chips guarantee sustained high performance, while high quality flash chips and custom firmware provide the lowest average annualized failure rate (AFR) in the industry.
Elgato Thunderbolt™ Drive+ is designed to work without the need for a noisy fan. With its inaudible Solid State Drive, that means you’ll never hear a sound, despite its constantly screaming performance.
Your valuable data is always protected by a rock-solid metal enclosure. No dust particle can reach the inside of Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+, and even splashes of liquid can do no harm to your files. This has earned Elgato Thunderbolt Drive+ IP64 certification – for you, it means a drive that’s not only beautiful, but also trustworthy.
