Munich, March 7, 2012 – Elgato today announced the immediate availability of Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD, the ultimate portable high-speed storage solution. The Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD combines a fast and reliable solid-state drive with revolutionary Thunderbolt technology. Housed in a robust metal enclosure, the drive draws its power directly through the Thunderbolt port and operates completely silently. The Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD is available immediately for EUR 399,95 €/GBP 349.95 £ (120 GB version) and EUR 649,95 €/GBP 569.95 £ (240 GB version).

Lightning-fast and ultraportable
Pairing a speedy Solid State Drive (SSD) with the unrivaled bandwidth of the Thunderbolt interface, the Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD offers significantly higher performance than any portable FireWire or USB storage solutions. As the Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD draws its power directly through the Thunderbolt port, it doesn’t require an external power supply. That way, the data on the drive is always available – even when there’s no power source nearby.

Reliable and completely silent
Unlike traditional portable hard drives, the design of the Elgato Thunderbolt™ SSD contains no moving parts, so it’s less prone to faults. The metal enclosure doesn’t just look great – it also ensures optimal heat dissipation. As this design doesn’t need a noisy fan, it operates completely silently, despite its constantly screaming performance.
