Spotlight: Pegasus J2 Thunderbolt Drive


The Promise Pegasus J2 is touted as the world's fastest and smallest Thunderbolt enabled external storage drive. Under the hood, the Pegasus J2 uses two mSATA solid-state drives to deliver a blistering 550 MB/s write and 750 MB/s read over a Thunderbolt bus when connected to an external AC power source. It can also be powered solely from a Thunderbolt port, where it is still capable of achieving 110 MB/s writes and 270 MB/s reads. The Pegasus J2 supports Mac OS X, Windows 7 and Windows 8, and is available in 256GB or 512GB of raw capacity. It can be configured either in RAID 0, RAID 1 or JBOD.
