Use speedy Thunderbolt hardware for faster data transfers

Looking to add some speed to your rig's storage gear? Thunderbolt is ready to take you to new heights.

Compact and powerful, the $650 (without drives) Drobo Mini accommodates four 2.5-inch drives, and has a USB 3.0 port, too.

Components are readily accessible and snap into place easily; and BeyondRAID technology offers users single- or dual-drive redundancy.

Buffalo Technology MiniStation Thunderbolt HD-PATU3

Buffalo Technology's $240 MiniStation Thunderbolt HD-PATU3 packs 1TB of storage in a compact, portable chassis.

The HD-PATU3 is the first Thunderbolt drive to come configured with both USB 3.0 and Thunderbolt ports on board. Even better: Both of the needed cables are included in the package. However, the Thunderbolt version of this product is preformatted to work only with Macs.
