If you shoot photos or video for a living, then you have experienced first hand the drawbacks of transferring digital media from storage devices to post production editing machines. Gnarbox has been working on solutions for these issues faced by creatives in the field, and their second iteration of a rugged solid state backup drive, the Gnarbox 2.0, promises to deliver speedy and reliable media transfers from the wild to the workroom.
Built to be a better version of their previously released mobile backup device, the Gnarbox 2.0 has been redesigned to maximize efficiency and user experience, while still keeping the equipment minimal and to the point. Inside the box, the robust hardware includes a Intel Quad Core 2.4-GHZ CPU, 4 Core Intel HD Graphics GPU, 2-4GB LPDDR3 RAM, and up to 1 TB of storage, making this one of the more capable hard drives on the market. Integrations with LumaFusion, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Adobe Lightroom allow for quick edits and design layouts in the field, and connectivity to DropBox allows for wireless uploads to cloud storage. The removable 3200 mAh lithium ion battery provides 5-hours of battery life while backing up and 3-hours when editing, ensuring you’ll have enough time to make annotations to anything you shoot. With the casing rated as shock proof, dust proof, and IP-67 waterproof, the Gnarbox 2.0 is sure to be a solid choice for years to come.
