The SSD drive unit that Akito sent me, fits as seen in the picture in the palm of my hand. I installed two 1gb SSD drives in it, hooked it with the “included” thunderbolt cable to my Mac, setup was as painless as plugging in the cable. I tested data transfer speeds and saw transfers speed approach 10gb per second. I also tested video capture, and post editing processing directly on the drive. Performance was better than processing on my mac that has a standard hard drive. Read More...
