Elgato Releases Thunderbolt SSD with 270 MB/s Transfer Rate
Posted on March 6, 2012 by eli courey
Elgato has released an awesome portable Thunderbold SSD, available in 120GB or 240GB configurations. It features transfer speeds of 270 MB/s, 3.4 times faster than Firewire 800 and 7.7 times faster than USB 2.0.
The drive is very portable and doesn’t require a separate power supply, it draws power directly through the Thunderbolt port. It is also “quieter than a whisper” because it’s designed to work without a fan.
Hopefully prices on SSDs come down soon, because they aren’t cheap right now. The 120GB sells for $429 and the 240GB will cost you $700. They are available for purchase now on Elgato’s website.
