Comments : * To achieve full interface bandwidth, connect the product to either a USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt port on a computer or device.

  • These transfer rates were achieved using AJA System Test with the SSD version connected to a Mac computer via the Thunderbolt interface. Actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors, such as chosen interface and disk capacity.

When referring to drive capacity, one gigabyte, or GB, equals one billion bytes and one terabyte, or TB, equals one thousand billion bytes. Your computer’s operating system may use a different standard of measurement and report a lower capacity. In addition, some of the listed capacity is used for formatting and other functions and will not be available for data storage.

The Thunderbolt connection saved valuable transfer and Time Machine backup times. The best portable drive for backups of modern Apple computers with Thunderbolt connections.
