Akitio has been pushing Thunderbolt storage solutions since the beginning, and as the technology has started to catch on, it now has a full Thunderbolt ready portfolio.
One of their newer products coming to market is the Palm RAID Thunderbolt. This device houses two mSATA SSDs inside an aluminum chassis slightly larger than a standard 2.5 inch drive. The kicker of this product is not the performance, but rather that the device is bus powered. One of the biggest downfalls of almost every Thunderbolt product we have reviewed over the last year has been the added heft of having to plug the device into the wall for power; so it's a welcomed design to have our first bus powered Thunderbolt SSD solution in-house.
Compatibility of the Akitio Palm RAID Thunderbolt extends to OS X 10.7+ and even Windows 7 and 8 via a driver available on Akitio's website.
Pricing, Availability and Specifications
MSRP of the 256GB Palm RAID Thunderbolt is listed at $399.99 with a two-year warranty.
