Buyers remorse

J. Harmon, Amazon
7 December 2014
  • Summary: I am already looking for a new hard drive with two thunderbolt ports. Thunderbolt devices must have two ports on them in order to daisy chain the device and have another thunderbolt device attached at the same time. Since this device only has one thunderbolt port it is the only thunderbolt device that I can run while using it. This is simply poor design and I wish I had never purchased it.

The Lightning Cable failed very shortly

  • Summary: The Lightning Cable failed very shortly after being put in service. Fortunately the USB 3.0 Cable still worked, else I would have returned it, however, this has turned me off from Buffalo branded hard drives. I'll stick with OWC from now on...

No proper thunderbolt integration?!!!?

fmp7 "willlynilly", Amazon
16 August 2012
  • Summary: Sure, its a portable drive, no big deal, dime a dozen - they all pretty much do what they are meant to do. But this device gets a bad review from me because they didn't put DUAL THUNDERBOLT ports on it!!! WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???? I wish i wasn't in such a hurry when i ordered or I would've noticed this obvious flaw. Thunderbolt is all based on the concept of DAISY CHAINING devices together. The macs have JUST ONE port!

Design schlägt Leistung

maniac67, Amazon
31 August 2013
  • Summary: Habe mir diese externe aufgrund den Schnittstellen bestellt, musste allerdings feststellen, dass hier mMn mehr wert auf das Design gelegt wurde. Im Test mit einer 13 GB Datei war sogar die Übertragung mit USB 3.0 ein Tick schneller (im Schnitt Thunderbolt 80 mb/s USB 3.0 90 mb/s - getestet am Mac Pro Late 2012). Das Design passt natürlich zum MacBook und sieht sehr schick aus. Da aber die Leistung nicht überzeugt, habe ich die Platte wieder retourniert.
