- high-speed data access, enabled by Thunderbolt™ technology
- bus-powered operation ensures true portability
- superior reliability thanks to flash storage and robust metal enclosure
- completely silent
Before Elgato started working on what became the most advanced TV and video solutions for the Mac, we were part of the revolution of innovative storage technology. The vast majority of FireWire drives contained Elgato software, and even early flash-based products were powered by Elgato.
Over a decade later, we were thrilled when Thunderbolt was introduced. So we decided to go back to our roots and create what we have always been longing for: a truly portable, ultra-fast external drive.
The Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD is still the fastest single-drive storage solution for your Mac. Using a Solid State Drive (SSD), it dramatically outperforms state-of-the-art portable FireWire or USB drives – including portable drives with USB 3. And with the included Elgato Thunderbolt™ Cable and new, affordable pricing, there’s no reason to constrain yourself to slow transfer speeds any longer.
While you’re on the go, less is more. That’s why the Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD is engineered to draw power directly through the Thunderbolt port, without needing a separate power supply. This way, your data is always there with you, even when you’re not near a power source.
A safe bet
Due to the lack of moving, mechanical parts, Solid State Drives are far less prone to accidental damage than traditional hard drives. Even better, the Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD uses a rock-solid metal enclosure, guaranteeing not only good looks, but also added protection for your valuable data.
Quieter than a whisper
The Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD is designed to work without the need for a noisy fan. With its advanced enclosure and the inaudible Solid State Drive, that means you’ll never hear a sound, despite its constantly screaming performance.

"If you need quick and portable fast storage today, the Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is a solidly constructed external SSD that works well with Thunderbolt-equipped PCs."

"The cable is also relatively short at 0.5 meter -great for keeping your desk tidy"
Thunderbolt Cable (Leah Yamshon, Macworld, July 2012)
"it took less than 20 seconds to transfer 2GB of video from the Mac to the drive. These numbers are a godsend to video producers, graphic designers, and photographers who need external storage that won’t lag behind. This is, quite literally, the fastest portable drive we’ve ever seen"
