AKiTiO at Next Video Expo 2014

The first day of Next Video Expo 2014 is over and it was a good day thanks to all the visitors who stopped by our booth. For those who would also like to meet us, tomorrow is the last day.

On Thursday, October 2nd, the show opens at 10AM and closes at 5PM. AKiTiO can be found at the booth #218.

For this show, our main products on display are Thunderbolt™ and Thunderbolt™ 2 storage products but we also show the new MD4 U3e rack-mount chassis.

AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad

When buying an AKiTiO product, what you get in the box doesn't just include the hard drive enclosure. Each product comes of course with a power adapter when needed and a setup guide to show you how to get started but it also comes with the necessary interface cables. That includes a Thunderbolt™ cable worth USD $29 for Thunderbolt products and in some cases even multiple cables (e.g. USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire) for those storage drives that offer more than one interface.

In addition, AKiTiO also takes care of the little things we know from experience that can make a big difference when using the device on a daily base. For one, we include a velcro cable strap to keep your cables neat and tidy. For another, those products with an external power adapter also come with a sticker that can be used to label the adapter. No more guessing which power adapter goes where.

Wait, it gets even better! For a limited time, when you buy a Thunderbolt product directly from AKiTiO, we also ship you a free Lightning to USB cable worth USD $25. This offer is valid while supplies last for orders placed on our shop at http://shop.akitio.com.
