AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad Mini

I've had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time with the AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad Mini SSD 4X1TB for about a year now, actually. It's small enough to pack in my suitcase when I fly or stuff in a gear case when I drive to do training and presentations. I've used it for logging 4K media files in the field in the back of my truck, to editing video in my hotel rooms to demoing Adobe workflows in my presentations. The speed of the Thunderbolt2 connectivity and the 4xSSD RAID make this an excellent choice for video production and doing live video demos. Read More...
