The Akitio Palm RAID Thunderbolt is, in my eyes, one of the better storage solutions on the market; especially for those of you that have been wanting and waiting for a bus powered Thunderbolt storage solution. Previous to this review, I always had to drag out the 6ft long power cord and power brick to hook up my Thunderbolt storage device. Now with the Palm RAID, I finally feel comfortable taking a Thunderbolt solution with me on the go for my MacBook.
On the Performance side of things, the Palm RAID did quite well in testing. Black Magic had the drive right around 600 MB/s read, and 280 MB/s write. In testing with AJA things were even better; 720p managed 650 read, and 500 write, while 1080p and 4K allowed a little more room for the Akitio to open up. At its peak we measured 740 MB/s in RAID 0 from the Palm RAID Thunderbolt.
The MSRP for the Akitio Palm RAID Thunderbolt in the 256GB capacity is set at $399.99 with a two-year warranty.
