You want speed? You want speed that you can take with you on the go? Why not combine two of the fastest technologies in one sleek package? The Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is exactly that.

As you can likely gather from its remarkably descriptive name, this portable drive ditches the conventional spinning platter of a 2.5-inch HDD for the faster memory (and lack of moving parts) offered by SSD storage. Going further, it adds on super-fast Thunderbolt connectivity for an even faster experience. That gives you up to 270MB/s, compared to the 80MB/s of FireWire 800 and the 35MB/s of USB 2.0. Since it’s Thunderbolt, it doesn’t require an external power supply either.

Naturally, the added performance comes at an added price. The 120GB and 240GB versions of the Elgato Thunderbolt SSD portable drive will retail for $429.95 and $699.95 when it ships next month.
