If you’re an audio, video, or a photo professional, you would likely be using an older Mac Pro, Macbook Pro, Macbook Air, or iMac with the FireWire interface for your storage. Knowing this, you may need to also work on a PC from time to time. If you needed to access your external drive on a PC, FireWire 800 would not work and USB 2.0 is the only option. This is not fast enough to get your work done quickly and efficiently, when you’re waiting for multiple uncompressed movie, music, or audio files to be transferred. That being said, you would need a device to cater to both Mac and PC users utilizing eSATA (up to 3Gbps) while on a PC, and FireWire (up to 800Mbps) on a Mac. For that reason, we designed multiple interface enclosures for professionals who require working with cross-platform environments, for both single bay enclosure and dual bay RAID enclosures. For Mac devices with USB 3.0 interface, our USB 3.0 line will make sure to protect your data while processing your projects on the lightning USB 3.0 speed.

The Blizzard is designed for people who need a simple, yet reliable storage solution. We all know that one of the main reasons for hard drive failure is heat buildup. If a drive gets too hot (50 degree and up), it can cause stability issues, reduce performance up to 50%, and more importantly, cause hard drive failures. There have been cases that certain name brand external hard drives have a lack of a proper cooling system or even refurbished drive been used internally the external drive. To prevent hard drive from failure, you need an enclosure that’s able to keep the drive cool at all times. With that said, we’ve built an enclosure with an outstanding cooling system known as the Blizzard. The Blizzard is able to maintain drive temperatures within 30-35 degree when the drive is under load (ambient temperature at 28.1c with 7200RPM drive), which is 15-20 degrees below most HDD manufacturer suggested working temperature. The Blizzard isn’t just a box with huge cooling fan, it’s designed with advanced features to ensure your drives longevity such as tool-less drive installation, smart cooling fan system, overheat LED indicator, and adjustable fan speed control with 3 year warranty, making Blizzard the most featured packed and coolest enclosure on the market.
