Efficient

The CalDigit AV Drive was designed to be energy efficient and environmentally friendly. Special power management technology allows the AV Drive to sleep, wake and shutdown along with the computer. If the computer goes to sleep, the AV Drive will follow. CalDigit uses top quality components in the power adapters and specifically designs them with grounding support to protect and prolong the life of your product.

Heat Management

Effective cooling is usually what separates a good drive from a dead drive. Most manufacturers use heat sinks to cut production costs but they aren't all that effective on their own. CalDigit focuses on the customers and their precious data. To help with heat dissipation, the AV Drive features an ambient temperature-controlled smart fan. This special fan monitors the heat output of the AV Drive and turns on only when needed. This ensures both a cool and quiet experience.
