Thunder2 Quad
External Thunderbolt 2 Storage Solution

Used | Good Condition

Faster than ever, you can now achieve speeds of up to 1375MB/s with this 4-bay Thunderbolt 2 technology storage enclosure. The removable trays allow for easy installation and replacement of the drives. They are designed for both 2.5" SSDs where speed is the priority and for 3.5" HDDs when it's important to maximize the storage capacity. An ultra durable aluminum casing provides efficient heat dissipation, plus an extra large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.
High-Speed I/O Performance
By incorporating the awesome Thunderbolt 2 interface and combining it with four SSD drives that can keep up in a RAID 0 software RAID, AKiTiO’s Thunder2 Quad is ready to deliver an extremely fast throughput performance of up to 1375MB/s.
2 Thunderbolt Ports for Daisy Chain
The second Thunderbolt 2 port lets you daisy chain up to five Thunderbolt devices together. For example, you can attach additional external drives and even a display all connected to your computer through a single cable.
4K Workflow with Thunderbolt 2 Technology
Thunderbolt 2 technology incorporates DisplayPort 1.2 support, which allows for video streaming to a single 4K video monitor. If you are a video editor, you can now use a single port to connect your external storage drives and a 4K display.
Faster Backup and Data Duplication
With the free AKiTiO Data Multiplier application, backing up and duplicating files is faster than ever. Designed with video editors and data imaging technicians in mind, the application requires only a few clicks to simultaneously copy the files from one drive and duplicate them onto up to three other drives.
