        External/Internal Hard Drives

        External Hard Drives & Internal Hard Drives are a necessity for modern Video & Audio workflows, and Markertek carries Solid State and HDD from the leading manufacturers. Hard Drives come in an array of transfer rates & protocols, as well as storage capacities. Connectivity protocols include USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt, Ethernet, eSATA just to name a few. Most drives can be used as standalone storage, mirrored or RAID configured.

        SSD (Solid State Drives) store data on flash memory, while HDD (Hard Disk Drives) use a mechanical, arm to write data to a spinning metallic "platter." HDD come in varieties that spin at different rates, and the faster they spin, the higher the data transfer rate. Early NLEs relied on 10,000rpm drives for video transfer. SSD offer even faster transfer rates and are much more stable in mobile environments, and are widely used in laptops and video field recorders like the Atomos line. Both types of drives can be used internally or externally, but unlike HDD, SSD won't break or corrupt data if jostled or dropped while writing files.

        Markertek is proud to carry ruggedized external hard drives for mobile use, desktop and RAID solutions from brand like LaCie, Glyph and G-Technology just to name a few. Contact us today and let our representatives guide you to External Hard Drives & Internal Hard Drives you can depend on.
