Thunder2 Quad 4 Drive Thunderbolt Enclosure

Thunder2 Quad with MacPro

  The Thunder2 Quad bay Thunderbolt JBOD enclosure is hands down the best bargain to be had in Thunderbolt storage today. Great performance, over 1300 MB/sec in possible throughput. Ease of use. No drivers, no RAID software or hardware, plug it in and go to work.

2 x Thunderbolt 2 ports

  With a pair of Thunderbolt ports you can chain up to 5 more Thunderbolt devices off this unit. And being Thunderbolt 2 you can maintain the chain's speed at top Thunderbolt 2 levels.

Performance

  With full Thunderbolt 2 bandwidth you can get 100% of the performance out of installed hard drives and SSDs. If you want the highest speed, stick a couple of SSDs in and RAID0 them. You can easily get up around 800MB/sec just using 2 SSDs. The trays in the Thunder 2 are built to accommodate either 3.5 inch drives or 2.5 inch drives and SSDs. This device is FAST.

Hotswap Capability

  Easy to use tray system. You can pull a drive and insert a drive without affecting the operation of other drives in the enclosure. note: if you swap drives a lot, I'd recommend just leaving the front panel off for easier access to the drive trays. While not hard to remove, it will save a step to just leave it off.

Bootable

  You can backup to, and boot off of, drives installed inside the Thunder 2 Quad. Note, this device is not Bootcamp compatible.

Small Size

  At 5.5 inch X 7 inch X 9.5 inch this is a small enclosure for its power. It takes up very little space on the desktop and is pretty nice looking.

Personal observations: Very solid all aluminum design. Works like it should right out of the box. Speeds are uncompromisingly fast as possible. I don't think you can build a 4 drive enclosure faster than this. Like all Akitio devices the fan is not fancy. I can hear it, it doesn't bother me a bit. But that means some folks who are more sensitive will be bothered by it as it isn't silent. Two cures for that: we can use a longer Thunderbolt cable and put it further away, or we can swap the fan out for a Stealth fan for you before shipping. Either way is a low fuss solution. ~Rick
