The design of the drive has been kept very simple and on the outside no lights or power buttons have been added to ruin the sleeked curved lines of the small Thunderbolt equipped SSD.

Elgato Thunderbolt solid state disk drives are capable of transferring at 270 MB/second for data reads, say Elgato who tested the speeds with a 15in 2.2GHz Core i7 MacBook Pro. Unfortunately the Elgato Thunderbolt SSD is only equipped with one Thunderbolt port so it will need to be at the end of your daisy chain.
