Elgato Releases Thunderbolt SSD with 270 MB/s Transfer Rate

Posted on March 6, 2012 by

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.
