If you need the two fastest storage technologies around—SSD and Thunderbolt 3—the Sonnet Fusion is worth a look. The drive uses 1TB worth of 3 PCIe Flash Memory, currently the fastest flash memory on the market with data transfer speeds up to 2600MB/s, depending on your computer. It’s fast enough to serve as a 4K video editor but also to run applications and operating systems.
The drive is completely Bus-powered so you can run it off of its Thunderbolt 3 connection. It measures a compact 2.8 x 4.1 x 1.25 inches. The Fusion uses a so-called captive Thunderbolt cable to ensure that if the cable is accidentally broken, it can be quickly replaced by Sonnet or an authorized service center.
