Designed from the ground up for creative professionals and multimedia enthusiasts, the Pegasus J4 benefits from its incredible flexibility, amazing transfer speeds, and compact design which makes it stackable with a Mac mini. This makes the Pegasus J4 perfect for videographers, graphic artists, photographers and content creators for instantly backing up and editing content and moving high resolution video and graphic files that take up a lot of space at stunningly high speeds.

"There are more creative professionals and digital users storing, editing and protecting high resolution files than ever before, and they are looking for storage solutions that offer the ideal combination of flexibility, speed, versatility, and reliability," said James Lee, CEO, PROMISE Technology.

The Pegasus J4 is perfect for audio/video production as it provides creative professionals with the versatility to work remotely with a laptop to backup footage & start editing on-site without having to go back to the office. Additionally, since the Pegasus J4's dual thunderbolt ports support daisy chaining, users can conveniently connect Thunderbolt enabled displays or Pegasus storage devices to boost overall transfer speeds.
