Akitio – High Speed External Storage | NewsWatch Review

Tech Report Review

In a digital world where documents and media files can pile up quickly, it’s important to have storage devices readily available. A new company called Akitio is solving that problem. Their goal is to provide their consumers with cutting edge technological products that are both easy to use and reliable. They aim not only to be environmentally friendly, but also to ensure affordable prices and innovate their products regularly.

Akitio makes all sorts of great computer storage products including USB, FireWire, eSATA and now Thunderbolt and USB 3.1. They have simple storage products for home use that sell for as little as $10 and prosumer products like their 4 Bay Thunder2 QUAD mini that can be ordered with four six terabyte solid-state harddrives at the staggering price of $25,999. Maybe not necessary for the average consumer but definitely great for any commercial usage.Akitio Thunderbolt

One of the products that really caught our eye was the Thunder2 Dock. This cool little device allows you to connect your older FireWire, USB and eSATA drives to your new Thunderbolt equipped computer through one Thunderbolt cable. In other words, it links past, present, and future technology through just one cable, which diminishes all that tedious work of copying old files to new devices. With the Thunder2 Dock, you will have the ability to accumulate an immense amount of data for a range of devices on one single dock.Akitio ThunderDock2

For anyone who doesn’t know what thunderbolt is, it’s the newest and fastest way to transfer files, reaching speeds of up to 20 Gigabits per second.

To put that in real world perspective, you could transfer around 500 songs in a single second. With speed like this you will never want to go back.
