Product Description

An all-new industrial design, faster connectivity, silent operation and a warranty that everyone is talking about.

When you need small, portable storage but can’t sacrifice quality, the Studio mini is your solution. It’s small enough to fit in your pocket, but powerful enough to take its rightful place in your workflow.

A fanless, light aluminum enclosure keeps the Studio mini quiet and cool while you work on the road. Featuring USB 3.0, FireWire 800 and eSATA ports, bus power via USB or FireWire, a rear power switch, and a stainless steel face plate.

New York Based Quality

First we select the highest quality components available. Then we assemble the drives in our US factory, and perform regimented testing on every unit before it ships to you.

Create With Confidence

This product is backed with a full 3 year warranty, including 2 years of basic data recovery, and one year of advance replacement service.


Mobile Storage for the Creative Professional

Blistering transfer speeds, heat-transfer technology, disk health monitoring, optimized firmware, bus-powered, and squeezed inside an elegantly designed industrial steel and aluminum enclosure.

More Than 4 Times Faster Than FireWire

With transfer speeds up to 420 MB/s, the Studio mini mini offers true next-generation USB 3.0 performance. This means faster editing, quick rendering, more tracks, more samples, and a more efficient workflow.

No Outlet? No Problem

No more searching for a bulky power adapter when you're pressed for time and on the go. Studio mini is bus-powered by USB or FireWire. An AC adapter is an optional accessory if your configuration does not support bus-power.

Disk Health Monitoring

Custom sensors monitor the health of your Studio mini, warning you of activity patterns that indicate potential problems with your drive.

Engineered To Stay Cool

Our unique heat transfer technology draws heat away from internal components, moves it to the aluminum exterior to dissipate, and significantly reduces the chance of component failure.

Plug & Play

The Studio mini comes ready for use with Mac so you can plug in and begin storing your files immediately. It's also Time Machine compatible, so you can begin backing up your computer right away.

Windows user? No problem! A simple reformat will configure your BlackBox for use with a PC.
