FILM DRIVES '2TB NVME SSD'
Definitely. You can connect the SSD to a computer via a USB-C to USB-A Cable. However, when using USB-A your speeds will drop down to 450MB/s due to the limitations of USB 3.0. The drives are rated at 950MB/s which is a significant speed compromise and may slow down your production. This is why these SSDs ship with only a USB-C to USB-C Cable as that is the ideal connection.
Yes, the Film Drives '2TB NVME SSD' is compatible with both Mac and PC.
Each and every Film Drive comes pre-formatted for macOS. They are formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled) with a GUID Partition Map. The reason it isn't showing up on your PC is because Mac OS Extended (Journaled) only works on a Windows PC with 3rd Party Software such as MacDrive or HFS+ for Windows. All you need to do is Erase and Format the drive in the Disk Management Software. You can make it NTFS or exFAT and you'll be good to go.
Spinning disk drives no longer cut it speed wise when working in a modern production environment. We have chosen to transition to a lineup of solid state drives so that we can continue bringing you the fastest on-set drives available. The only exception to this are our Custom RAID Builds which are often 4-8 Bay RAID Arrays of 7200rpm 3.5" Drives, these perform around 500MB/s-600MB/s which is still acceptable for most jobs.
