This combo of gear facilitates quick safe storage and backup from your laptop to the 1TB AV Drive via high-speed USB 3.0 connectivity. It reaches rotational speeds of 7200 RPM, enjoys a 32 MB cache and is compatible with both PC and Mac.
The USB 3.0 interface can achieve transfer rates up to 5 Gbps. In order to make their drive more flexible, CalDigit has also equipped the AV Drive with two FireWire 800 ports. Plus, the USB 3.0 is backward compatible with USB 2.0 interfaces as well.
Inside the drive, CalDigit has preloaded AV Drive Assistant, Carbon Copy Cloner, an Intuitive RAID Tool and the software to ensure the AV Drive is Time Machine Ready.
