Designed for content creators who prefer to travel without a laptop, the GNARBOX 2.0 SSD 1TB Rugged Backup Device offers 256GB, 512GB, or 1TB of NVMe PCIe SSD storage for backing up photos, videos, and other files. These single-step, one-touch backups with status and checksum can be performed without your laptop, phone, or tablet, using the onboard OLED screen and buttons. Content can be backed up to the GNARBOX 2.0 SSD using its two USB 3.0 Type-C ports, which operate at speeds up to 400 MB/s, or its integrated SD card reader, which operates at speeds up to 75 MB/s. Users will also be able to collaborate and share content on HDMI-enabled displays using the integrated micro-HDMI port. Living up to its “rugged” name, the GNARBOX 2.0 SSD is IP67 certified and can endure being submerged in 3.3' of water for up to 30 minutes, and its metal and rubber enclosure and gasket-sealed port doors help protect it from dust and dirt.

The GNARBOX 2.0 SSD also features software applications that allow users to advance their professional workflow. Use the Safekeep app for field backups, with file/folder organization and tools for management. Photographers will appreciate the Selects app, which allows them to preview raw photos, mark selects, use metadata, and prepare images for further editing. For videographers, the Sequence app provides an accelerated rough cut assembly experience with a direct bridge to send sequences to an editor. In addition to raw images, supported files include H.264, H.265, ProRes, and MXF media for editing in Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro X, and more. If you’re an iOS user, you will benefit from editing with Adobe Lightroom CC or LumaFusion.

The GNARBOX 2.0 SSD is backed by a 2.4 GHz Intel® Quad-Core™ processor, integrated Intel HD Quad-Core graphics, up to 4GB of RAM, and Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac) connectivity, which delivers speeds of up to 867 Mb/s.
