USB4, Thunderbolt 3 and Thunderbolt 4 external NVMe 2TB SSD drive with data throughput of 40Gbps, also available in 1TB Thunderbolt SSD drive.
2TB Thunderbolt SSD drive now reduced to $495.95.
Do you need the highest performance data storage for your professional studio, photography, gaming or currency mining?
HomeKit Australia's $495.95 2TB SSD drive offers a full 40Gbps data transfer via Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 or USB4 on Apple Macs, high-end iPads and high end PC's.
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. 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 can transfer this 300 hours of video in under 20 seconds.
Thunderbolt 4 combined with NVMe SSD provides access to the PCIe bus of the host device, such as your computer. Previously PCIe was only accessible by internal devices and external storage was always slower than similar equipment installed internally. Thunderbolt 4 changes all of that and now external data storage is as fast as if you had your SSD installed internally .... only with Thunderbolt 4 and NVMe SSD.
Please do not confuse this SSD drive with SSD drives that can only transfer 5, 10 or at best 20GBps. This 2TB Thunderbolt SSD external drive is absolutely the real deal.
HomeKit Australia's external 2TB SSD drive is built around a Seagate Barracuda 2TB PCIe Gen 3 SSD, capable of 2400MB/sec read speeds and 1800MB/sec write speeds. Our drive uses an NVMe interface for fastest data transfer with an m.2 (2280) form factor.
For professional photographers, video creators and other design and studio professionals, gamers and currency miners, these 40Gbps 2TB external SSD USB4 Thunderbolt drives 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.
Like all the products we sell, we are using these 2TB SSD drives ourselves, each and every day. 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 and teamed this with a 2TB Seagate Barracuda SSD. There are some very good external SSD drives available outside Australia but they can cost 2 and 3 times the price of our new 2TB USB4 Thunderbolt SSD external drive.
Constructed of thick dark silver/grey Aluminium alloy, these Thunderbolt cases quickly dissipate heat. 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 Thunderbolt cases DO NOT include a Thunderbolt cable. Thunderbolt cables can be ordered separately. Thunderbolt 4 cables are backwardly compatible with USB-C.
Some cases for sale in Australia 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.
These 2TB SSD drives and Thunderbolt cables are in stock and can ship out today.
Remember, always verify that the SSD you are buying can genuinely transfer 40Gbps .... most truly only transfer 5Gbps, 10Gbps and if you are very lucky 20Gbps.
This HomeKit Australia 2TB SSD drive transmits a genuine 40Gbps.
We've now added a screen shot of testing via Black Magic Design's Disk Speed Test from one of our 2TB Thunderbolt SSD drives that houses a backup on an Intel iMac. We've tested the same 2TB Thunderbolt 4 SSD drive both with our own Thunderbolt 4 cables and with third-party Thunderbolt 3 cables.
The comparison was astonishing and we would thoroughly recommend that you purchase our Thunderbolt 4 cables. We are happy to provide comparison screenshots.
This 2TB Thunderbolt SSD drive is formatted as a Mac APFS volume for internal testing and verification prior to shipping.
If you are using a PC or other platform you can simply initialise the SSD once you plug it in. You might be very surprised how little time this takes.
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.
