Is this a truly new product that you can’t find on the market? Or this a product that defines an entirely new product category. In some cases, the combination of several features into one or the introduction of a new feature to an old product are also considered to be an innovation.
Considering how fast the evolution of data is today, and how big the need for data storage is based on this, it makes a lot of sense to notice the SSD storage market being full of choices. It is, therefore, essential to take a deep look into the features of the equipment to find out whether there is anything new that has not been introduced before. For TurboHub 4tb SSD external, the 6-in-1 functionality, and the impressively high 1200MBpsc read & write speed are the characteristics that are not found in many of the similar devices, and that are extremely desired and demanded by the backer community.
How much better is it than the competition? Is it faster? Bigger? Cooler? More affordable? There needs to be a solid reason why you should back this project over any other.

|Dimensions (inches)||4.7 x 1.97 x 0.43||3.30 x 2.20 x 0.30||3.79 x 1.95 x 0.35||3.9 x 1.1 x 0.35|

TurboHub has a lot to stand out within the competition. With the highest transfer speed and yet the lowest price, the portable SSD manages to appear as the best external SSD option for the ones who are considering getting SSD storage. It might seem a little bit larger with its length compared to the other options displayed above, however, it still fits in your pocket and is absolutely lightweight and easy to carry.
How capable is the team? Have they developed something like this before? Do they have crowdfunding experience? Manufacturing experience? A lot of campaigns fail to deliver their product because they don’t know what they’re doing.
TurboHub 4tb SSD external is the very first campaign of the team under ShenZhen JinKaiYa Electronic Co. Ltd. The mentioned company is aimed to design and manufacture products that would enhance people’s connectivity and understanding of technology and innovation. For this purpose, the company integrates research and development together with design and sales.
Although this is the first created campaign of the team on Kickstarter, they have already managed to create a website, turbohub.net, which contains all the information regarding the specifications of the product, the story of its team, and much more. This enhances the trustworthiness of the team by keeping the backer community aware and by staying transparent about who they are and what their goal is. The belief of the community towards the campaign and the producer team is best illustrated through the excitement with which they keep backing the project. TurboHub has managed to raise about $129.000 by getting totally funded within the first 2 hours of launching with an initial goal of $19.346 and with still 30 days to go.
On the other hand, many backers seem to be skeptical about the product’s features, as they seem too idealistic to many of them. TurboHub claims for all the mentioned features to be working and ensures to be posting demo videos to prove this. The videos, however, don’t seem to be there so far:
They have promised to post demo videos earlier, too, and the absence of those seems to be creating some hesitation amongst the backers. However, the team keeps consistent in their responsiveness.
How transparent are the campaigners? Do they give their backers valuable updates on their progress? Do they engage with their backers? Crowdfunding is all about community, sharing information and building a meaningful relationship with the people who fund your project.
When checking the updates of the campaign, I noticed a company named Hyper continuously commenting and talking about the TurboHub having misappropriated their trademark. The company, which appears to be producing a similar product, keeps commenting and asking for proofs for the specifications of the product mentioned by the TurboHub team. The team, instead, seems to be gently addressing the concerns of the mentioned company and agrees they have had a problem regarding the trademark, which they solved right after they were contacted by the company:
Troubles and issues like this majorly illustrate the team’s true approach and reflect the customer service they have. TurboHub, as noticed from the comment, demonstrates an understanding and friendly response to a somehow aggressive comment, which, to mention, is not the only one by the Hyper company.
Other than this, the team’s responsiveness level and the transparency in the conversations with their backers seem to be significantly high.
Conclusion & Public Opinion
To conclude, the product’s specifications, as observed and mentioned, make it a strong candidate for becoming one of the best choices in the market. The team’s responsiveness and transparency seem to contribute to the belief of the product being as competitive, as introduced. Some hesitations though remain unsolved because of the absence of some visual proofs regarding the specs. This, however, is an arguable perspective and will be so until the product gets delivered to the backers, and they share their experiences with the first Kickstarter campaign of the TurboHub team.
