The PortaGig 50 SSD is designed for the highest speed possible, at the same time delivering high reliability, low power consumption and anti-shock features. 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. Connected by FireWire 800, USB or eSATA, it reports the drive's health and temperature as a background task using Glyph Manager, notifying you if your drive needs attention.
