Thunderbolt SSD drive .... do you need the highest performance data storage for your professional studio tasks? Now just $139.95.
HomeKit Australia presents a genuine 40Gbps Solid State Drive (SSD) case into which you can add your choice of lightning fast NVMe SSD's. You can purchase your SSD's from HomeKit Australia or other specialist computer suppliers. In late September, HomeKit Australia will have first stocks of its own NVMe SSD’s, at what should be Australia’s best Solid State Drive pricing.
For professional photographers, video creators and other design and studio professionals these 40Gbps cases are a must have. PCIe NVMe is the fastest protocol available so don't be fooled by other numbers and letters. The key is that you must be able to attain a 40Gbps data throughput, typically via USB4, Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4.
Did you know, with Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4, you can transfer a 4K movie in under 30 seconds and run two 4K displays and have nearly 16 million more pixels than an HDTV? Or that you can transfer 3 hours of 4K GoPro footage in less than one minute or back up a year’s worth of continuous MP3 music playback in just over 5 minutes. Did you know that 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute ... Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 will transfer this 300 hours of video in under 20 seconds.
The great news is that we are using these cases ourselves. You won't be speaking to a salesperson who has never even opened the pack but rather a supplier who insists on using every single product they sell .... themselves - no exceptions.
HomeKit Australia has searched the world for a quality USB4 Thunderbolt 4 40Gbps SSD case that is affordable. There are some very good cases available outside Australia but they can cost 2 and 3 times the price of our new Thunderbolt case.
There's 3 small screws to remove and replace once you've inserted your NMVe SSD stick or if you prefer you can purchase our 1TB Thunderbolt SSD drive or 2TB Thunderbolt SSD drive with Seagate Barracuda SSD's installed. You will also likely find this is a cheaper option unless you already have SSD's in hand.
HomeKit Australia's Thunderbolt cases quickly dissipate heat; made from thick aluminium alloy. At HomeKit Australia, we run our own Thunderbolt SSD drives 24/7 and these Thunderbolt drives and Thunderbolt cases always run cool and at worst, barely warm. If you consider another vendor, please ask them how HOT their own Thunderbolt SSD drive runs?
These cases are in stock snd shipping now.
Thunderbolt 4 cables need to be ordered separately and this case does not include a Thunderbolt cable. Thunderbolt cables are backwardly compatible with USB-C.
We know of some cases available in Australia that will not accept USB-C or have notches on the case which will only allow that company's cable to be used. With HomeKit Australia's case, any Thunderbolt 3, Thunderbolt 4 or USB4 cable can be used.
Remember, always verify that the case you are buying can genuinely transfer 40Gbps .... most truly only transfer 5Gbps, 10Gbps and if you are very lucky 20Gbps. This HomeKit Australia SSD case can transmit a genuine 40Gbps.
Please remember that Gbps stands for Gigabits per second.
We use Gbps as it is the commonly used measure of data transfer speeds between hardware devices ... storage capacity is typically measured in bytes, whilst data transfer speeds are typically measured in bits.
1GB/s is equivalent of 8Gbps, so 40Gbps is equivalent to a GB data transfer of 5GB/sec.
If you are looking to better understand Solid State Drives and their associated terminologies we've produced an SSD Primer which you can download. We have also published Thunderbolt - a Striking History on our News Blog.
