CalDigit VR 4TB External RAID Hard Drive
Capable of top transfer speeds of 220Mb/s, the CalDigit VR is a portable RAID hard drive with RAID 0, 1, and JBOD support. This speed and RAID configuration option is great for video editing, including playback of high definition video.
CalDigit VR's two internal hard drives are hot swappable which means changing out drives won't slow down your workflow. Its two drive RAID array sports a quadruple interface for ample connectivity and also features an easy to read frontside LCD. CalDigit hard drives are readily available from TapeOnline.com.
Unlike software RAID, CalDigit VR's hardware RAID keeps the strain off your computer by eliminating the need for additional CPU cycles and RAM usage. This leaves your computer to focus on more important tasks like video and effects processing while the CalDigit VR handles the majority of the data transfer work.
Cool and Secure
CalDigit VR is equipped with the latest technology to dissipate heat and keep the internal drives cool. This is achieved through an ambient temperature controlled smart fan and an all aluminum enclosure.
The device itself stays secure with a built-in security lock and password protection provided by CalDigit VR's software.
Hot Swappable Drives
Drive replacement and expansion is simple with CalDigit VR's two hotswappable drive modules allowing easy archiving.
The orange LCD display on the CalDigit VR keeps you informed of the drive's status displaying configuration, temperature, fan RPM, and hard drive health status.
The CalDigit VR comes with advanced, powerful, yet easy to use software for simple management tasks, hardware monitoring, diagnostic reports, firmware updates, and email notifications. The ability to update the CalDigit VR's firmware is a crucial feature allowing for bug fixes as well as the addition of new features.
A quadruple interface including USB 3.0, FireWire 400, FireWire 800, and eSATA is built into the CalDigit VR. In addition, the device is equipped with two FireWire 800 ports allowing a daisy chain of multiple CalDigit VR hard drives.
In the Box
An eSATA and FireWire 800 cable is included in the box. An eSATA extender for connection to internal eSATA ports found on most modern workstations is also included.
CalDigit VR comes with a 1 year warranty with all major components built by CalDigit. CalDigit uses only quality hard drives from leading manufacturers.
Note from the Manufacturer
With the increased power draw from this drive, users may notice more fan activity than with lesser capacity models.
