Dead Thunderbolt Port

MooseMalarkey, Amazon
20 December 2014
  • Summary: Buyers, do be aware with this drive, there are numerous reports of faulty Thunderbolt ports, and the same was true for me. I gave it a shot, because it was a decent price, but out of the box dead ports is frankly unacceptable to me. Promptly returned the drive. Will keep looking.

UN-Worthy of Your Mac

Christopher Mayo, Amazon
6 June 2013
  • Summary: [EDIT:] The BUFFALO MiniStation 500 GB Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive has failed. I have adjusted the review rating to reflect my poor experience with the defective product, and the lack of an acceptable avenue for resolving problems.

THUNDERBOLT CABLE STOPPED WORKING AFTER 2 DAYS

Jhezper Driedfish, Amazon
7 April 2013
  • Summary: The main reason i bought this is because of the Thunderbolt connectivity. After 2 days of use, cable has stopped working. USB 3.0 cable is still working though after several months of use. Will update review if using the official Apple Thunderbolt cable would work.
