Akitio Announces Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition Portable SSD

Akitio is proud to announce that our new one-bay, portable Thunderbolt storage device, the “Neutrino Thunderbolt Edition” is now available for shipping! The Neutrino will ship with a 120GB Intel 330 Series SSD. This complete Thunderbolt storage solution also comes with a Thunderbolt cable (a $49 value), so all you need to do is just plug it in and it is ready to use. The small 2.5” form factor makes it extremely portable and since it is bus-powered, there is no need for a power adapter. Just slip it into your pocket and you are ready to go! The Neutrino is the perfect solution for video editors, photographers and anyone else who wants or needs to transfer large amounts of data.

The Neutrino will retail for $299.99 (not inc. tax), making it the most affordable Thunderbolt SSD storage device on the market. Thunderbolt is the newest high speed I/O technology that was designed for optimum speed, performance, simplicity and flexibility. Thunderbolt is currently the fastest method of transferring data between a PC and other peripherals such as external storage devices and displays. It is able to provide simultaneous, bi-directional transfers of up to 10 Gbps over a single channel.

Intel boasts that Thunderbolt allows you to; “… –Transfer an HD movie in less than 30 seconds…” The stylish, all aluminum, Neutrino features a high performance SATA controller for increased performance. Write speeds of up to 465 MB/s make the Neutrino the fastest one bay Thunderbolt device on the market.

I doubt it would make any performance difference if this enclosure used USB 3.0 instead of Thunderbolt. It uses an Intel SSD 330 after all.

That doesn't even look that portable. You couldn't possibly need an enclosure that large for a single 2.5" SSD.
