About this item

The PortaGig 50 SSD is designed for the highest speed possible, at the same time delivering high reliability, low power consumption and anti-shock features. Why wait for a traditional hard disk drive to spin up? With no moving parts on the solid state drive, it has near-instantaneous read access time.

While a conventional HDD must wait for the rotation of the disk to bring the required sector under the read/write head (rotational delay) and for the access arm to reach the desired disk track (seek time), an SSD delivers your data almost immediately. Connected by FireWire 800, USB or eSATA, it reports the drive's health and temperature as a background task using Glyph Manager, notifying you if your drive needs attention.

Key Features

  • PortaGig 50 SSD has a distinct advantage over standard 2.5" HDDs since it's made of solid-state memory and has no moving parts and therefore eliminates the possibility of mechanical failure resulting from vibration, shock and heat
  • Absolutely no noise is generated from the PortaGig 50 SSD and much less power is needed for operation, which means less heat is generated as well. This also provides substantial weight savings
  • PortaGig SSD drives have extremely fast access speeds, making them a perfect match for remote audio and video work. In an audio environment, you'll experience ridiculous playback performance, even at high edit density
  • Designed with a fanless, aluminum enclosure, PortaGig SSD is bus powered and extremely light. If bus power is not available or is insufficient, you can use the included power supply
  • Weighing 8 ounces, it has two FireWire 800 ports and one USB 2.0 port, a rear power switch and is designed around the industry-proven Oxford 934 chip
  • Built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) functionality ensures highly reliable data transfer, while wear leveling technology redirects writes to lesser-used locations, ensuring a longer life span and data-retention
