The CalDigit AV Drive (http://www.caldigit.com) is now shipping. It’s CalDigit’s first single drive solution, and it has been completely optimized for audio and video.
The CalDigit AV Drive is also the first USB 3.0 drive for the Mac — though the the Mac doesn’t support USB 3.0. The dual interface drive also supports FireWire 800, which has been optimized and runs up to 30% faster than other FireWire 800 drives.
FireWire 800 will allow you to connect to your current computer. Then when you get the CalDigit SuperSpeed PCI Express Card or a USB 3.0 equipped computer, you will be ready to start using the CalDigit AV Drive at the fastest possible speeds, according to the folks at CalDigit.
The 1TB CalDigit AV Drive starts at US$199 and the CalDigit SuperSpeed PCI Express Card is $59. A 2TB version of the CalDigit AV Drive is also available.
