TerraMaster D5 Thunderbolt 3 Raid Storage: Perfect for Photographers

Written by  Ryan Cleeves Apr 28, 2018

One of TerraMaster’s recent releases is the latest generation of its Thunderbolt 3 RAID device, the D5 Thunderbolt 3.

This version uses the latest Thunderbolt 3 technology, boasting a transmission rate of up to 40 Gbps. It supports RAID 0, 1, 5, 10 and other data backup technologies, which will dramatically improve file transfer efficiency and data security.

A great choice for Photographers and Video Editors

TerraMaster’s 5-bay D5 Thunderbolt 3 is compatible with 3.5″ SATA disks and 2.5″ SSDs, for a total storage capacity of up to 60TB. This is the hardware that you need for a massive amount of storage. This will be particularly useful for photographers, video editors, and other media workers, who need a large capacity, ultra-fast 5-bay RAID storage device.

Are you doing a lot of 4K video post-production? You’ll love this. Copying 1 hour of 4K raw video clips with the TerraMaster D5 takes all of 1 minute, so you can see how this would drastically reduce the time required for post-production. This solution is going to save you a lot of time and make your workflow much nicer.

The D5 Thunderbolt 3 is a powerhouse.

Amazing Speed and Storage

The D5 Thunderbolt 3 has a 40-Gbps lightning speed interface, and read and write support speeds of up to 1,035 MB/s (test conditions: 5 SSDs, RAID 0 mode). It is compatible with daisy chaining across multiple Thunderbolt 3 devices, and each one can use the Thunderbolt interface.

This hardware also features a tough, aluminum-alloy integrated housing, with a high-efficiency heat-control system, and temperature-controlled fans. Thanks to its HD DP digital interface, video editors can connect the D5 Thunderbolt 3 to a 4K HD display as well. It also supports up to 3 screens for multi-tasking.

Given how compact the unit is, with its large storage capacity and super fast speeds, the D5 Thunderbolt 3 is the obvious choice for professionals who use very demanding applications and edit and stream in 4K. It is certified by both Apple and Intel. This unit is a real workhorse.
