Eliminate mechanical failures with this high-performance portable hard drive.
PortaGig 50 SSD has a distinct advantage over standard 2.5 HDDs since it's made of solid-state memory, and therefore eliminates the possibility of mechanical failure resulting from vibration, shock, and heat. In remote production situations, this means your PortaGig 50 SSD can operate reliably for more hours, in hotter environments, and under rougher conditions.
Why wait for a traditional hard disk drive to spin up? With no moving parts on the solid-state drive, it has near-instantaneous read access time. While a conventional HDD must wait for the rotation of the disk to bring the required sector under the read/write head (rotational delay), and for the access arm to reach the desired disk track (seek time), an SSD delivers your data almost immediately.
Quiet and Green
Absolutely no noise is generated from the PortaGig 50 SSD, and much less power is needed for operation, which means less heat is generated as well. This also provides substantial weight savings.
Performance in an Audio Environment
PortaGig 50 SSD drives have extremely fast access speeds, making them a perfect match for remote audio and video work. In an audio environment, you'll experience extremely high playback performance, even at high edit density. The PortaGig 50 SSD can record up to 40 tracks of 48kHz / 24-bit audio simultaneously.
Designed with a fanless, aluminum enclosure, PortaGig 50 SSD is bus powered and extremely light. If bus power is not available or is insufficient, you can use the included power supply. Weighing 8 ounces, it has two FireWire 800 ports, one eSATA port, and one USB 2.0 port, a rear power switch, and is designed around the industry-proven Oxford 934 chip.
Built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) functionality ensures highly reliable data transfer, while wear leveling technology redirects writes to lesser-used locations, ensuring a longer life span and data-retention.
