Thunderbolt Interface for Lightning-Fast Speeds
With advanced Thunderbolt technology that provides two channels on the same connector, the StoreJet 500 can transmit and receive data at the same time, and deliver unparalleled interface transfer rates of up to 10 Gb/s*. Besides, the two models are also equipped with a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port (SJM500 with UASP support), providing 10 times the bandwidth of USB 2.0. Additionally, a Thunderbolt port can daisy-chain up to 6 Thunderbolt devices** without losing throughput and transfer rates.
*Maximum interface transfer rates shown. Performance varies by capacity, user hardware and system configuration.
**As neither SJM300 nor SJM500 has a Thunderbolt pass-through port, they must be the last device on a daisy-chain.
Convenient, Sturdy, Elegant Design.
The StoreJet 500 is natively formatted in HFS+ for your Mac and fully supports Time Machine®. The SJM300's internal hard drive suspension system gives your hard drive comprehensive protection, whereas the SJM500 SSD can withstand 5 times greater shock than hard drives. Moreover, their high-quality metallic design complements your Mac with a sleek and elegant look.
