The Thunderbolt interface offers blazing-fast transfer speeds up to 10Gb/s and the strong metal casing keeps your valuable data safe at all times.

Can be used in any Mac system with either Thunderbolt or USB3.0 ports - fastest transfer speed is achieved via the Thunderbolt connection, reaching speeds up to 10Gb/s.

This portable SSD storage device uses premier MLC Flash chips, ensuring best possible reliability and superb performance at all times, while consuming less power than standard portable hard drives. Powered entirely by the USB or Thunderbolt ports, so there is no external power required.

From the manufacturer:

Introducing Transcend's StoreJet® for Mac® StoreJet 500 Portable Solid State Drive for your Mac. Besides the immense storage space, the SJM500 is also equipped with Thunderbolt™ and SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interfaces, offering even higher transfer rates to boost your productivity. The sturdy metallic design complements your Mac with a sleek and elegant look.

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.

Good product. Using it via to Thunderbolt to boot an iMac that didn't come with SSD. The difference in speed is noticeable.
