  • 1Description

This AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad Mini Enclosure is a four-bay Thunderbolt-2 technology storage enclosure. The removable trays allow for easy installation and replacement of 2.5" SATA 6 Gbps drives. SSD and HDD compatibility allows you to use SSDs when speed is the priority and HDDs when it's important to maximize storage capacity. A durable aluminum casing provides efficient heat dissipation, and a large rear fan keeps your drives cool during long hours of operation.

The maximum real world performance of this Thunderbolt-2 product is about 1375 MB/s. To reach these kind of speeds with the AKiTiO Thunder2 Quad Mini, four SSDs that are combined in a RAID 0 system (Apple Software RAID) are required. This Thunderbolt product is not compatible with Apple's Boot Camp.

  • Thunderbolt-2 interface for transfer speeds of up to 20 Gbps

  • Holds up to four 2.5" drives with SATA 6 Gb/s interface

    Akitio AK-TBQM-TIAA-AKTU reviews

    Thunder2 Quad Mini Enclosure is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool, reliable, quality, and FAST This is by far the best SSD enclosure on the market. It is superbly made and you can feel the quality of the materials. It is quiet, runs cool, and above all, it is fast and easy to use! Putting in the SSD drives requires putting in a few screws to the mounting bracket, which is the closest thing to a CON for this product. I wish you could just slide the SSD in and out with the need of a bracket. Other than that, it has been super reliable! I've been using this for 8 months now, and it has never disconnected or exhibited any signs of heat. I also ran drive speed benchmarks and they all went as high as the SSD drives could achieve! I highly recommend this enclosure! Worth every dollar!
