The Aero XDC from Tether Tools is an ideal external drive compartment that is compatible with any Tether Table Aero. The Aero XDC frees up valuable space on the Tether Table due to its low-profile sleeve, which mounts under the table’s surface. The compartment’s tunnel design allows for easy connectivity of drives and cables. The open structure also provides efficient ventilation in order to keep the external hard drives cool and operational.
External hard drives play an enormous role in a tethered photographer’s work-flow. There are several benefits to utilizing these drives, such as providing instant image access, overcoming limited internal computer storage space and implementing a real-time back-up system and protecting against drive failure.

Sturdy, well finished, and a good fit, roomy enough to hold a ruggedized external drive. Usually, I use mine with a G-Tech armored drive, but occasionally I stack two external SSDs.

Perfect for keeping an external drive attached and out of the way while tethering. Simple to install.

When shooting tethered I save images to an external drive. With the Aero XDC the drive is off of the tray, leaving plenty of room for the laptop and mouse. The compartment is well made, and mounts securely to the Aero tray.
