Because data is becoming the engine that runs our world, we cannot ignore the need for high-quality storage systems. As such, technology is always inventing newer and better storage systems. In fact, the more portable the external storage device is and the higher its storage capacity, the better it is for most users.
TurboHub promises to deliver just that, a highly portable and small-sized SSD storage device that is more than that. By that, it means you have more usability from the device, including connectivity to multiple devices at a go. Who wouldn’t want to declutter all the devices on their desk in exchange for one?
While the device is not available in the market until March 2021 when shipping is set to begin, you can back the crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and be among the first individuals to purchase the gadget.
What do you get? Think of TurboHub as an all-in-one solution to storage and data transfer. The device offers multiple ports for connecting with most devices, from your laptop to your PC, iMac, Macbook, or smartphone. The gadget has:
- Thunderbolt 3 connector, with 40Gbps speed to connect to any Apple devices you have;
- HDMI 2.0 4K60Hz port for connecting to multiple monitors and watching 4K videos;
- USB 3.1 hub allows high-speed data transfer;
- USB type C port for connecting to smartphones with type C connectivity;
- SD Card reader that transfers data with a speed of 300MB/s;
- Ethernet port for connecting to wired internet connections with a network speed of 1000Mbps.
Apart from the multi-port connectors, TurboHub also has a high storage capacity of up to 4TB. With this, you have all your storage needs met without adding extra storage devices into the mix. While the 4TB option will be more costly at $339.00, you can still go for a lower storage one, where there are two more options of 1TB and 2TB at the price of $119.00 and $189.00.
TurboHub is also fast, with a speed of 950MB/s that allows you to transfer large data sets, from videos to documents and images in no time. All you have to do is click and drag the data you need to transfer from other electronic devices, like computers, drones, and cameras, and you are good to go.
Perhaps what promises to prove the worthiness of backing this project is the 14-day satisfaction guarantee and the 1-year warranty. However, there are more affordable options. At the early bird prices of $339.00 $119.00 and $189.00 for the 4TB, 1TB, and 2TB, you can get some options on retail sites like Amazon.
These early prices are saving you 50%, 53%, and 54% of each storage size’s retail prices, but you can save about 100% with options like the Satechi, FlePow, and Minix Neo that cost less than $100.00 unless you deal with large data and need up to 4TB of storage space.
