Finally Akitio has added a larger capacity drive to their Thunderbolt storage line. Last year they introduced a 120 GB version, but these days with HD video and other large files 120 GB is just not enough. Today they are announcing a 256 GB version of their Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition. By using a solid state drive and a high performance SATA controller this drive is able to achieve transfer speeds of up to 464 MB/second making it the fastest one bay, bus powered external storage device on the market.
The drive does come with a Thunderbolt cable, which also powers the drive so it does not require an external power adapter. Akitio backs the Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition with a 2 year warranty.
