The Neutrino Thunder Duo makes a perfect tool for on-set editing as transfer speeds from a USB 3.0 card reader are fast. The drive is small so it can stay out of the way when your DIT / on-set editing table gets crowded. That pass-through Thunderbolt port was also nice when performing backups to the other portable drives.Read More...

Das kleine RAID-Gehäuse ist solide verarbeitet und genügt mit zwei Thunderbolt-Anschlüssen auch professionelleren Ansprüchen. Die Geschwindigkeit ist insgesamt sehr flott. Die Machart gefällt und ein kurzes Thunderbolt-Kabel ist sogar im Lieferumfang enthalten. Nur der Preis erscheint ein wenig zu hoch. Read More...

From a reliability factor, the Neutrio / Crucial SSD combo has withstood everything we can throw at it. We have filled the units up, repeatedly; run constant I/O at them and they now serve as the primary store for on-location video shoots - where we will fill up the 2TB drive in a three day period, unload and then start over again. All this time the combination has proven to be rock solid reliable and we have seen no loss in performance. Read More...
