    “I work away a lot. Often travelling from one job to another, over the years I’ve tried many different portable drives, so that I can go back to my images on the plane, or in my hotel room. The Avastor is my new travel companion. One thing that really impressed me, is the fact that my guys can hook the Avastor straight to my backup RAID, via the SATA Connection and, in what used to feel like an eternity, have whole shoots from two years ago in my bag and ready to go within no time at all..”
