Thunderbolt Is The Way of the Future!

Nathan M. Rose "Movie Guy from FlickDirect", Amazon
16 January 2013
  • Summary: When Apple and Intel came out with Thunderbolt I have to admit even I was skeptical. However this Buffalo mini station proved me wrong. Faster than firewire and USB3 this Thunderbolt portable drive streams my media and music quickly to any network I am on.

Fast, inexpensive thunderbolt performance

J. Lin, Amazon
7 December 2012
  • Summary: I got this originally to hack and put in an SSD for ultimate speed, but the performance has been adequate so I haven't bothered. The thunderbolt performance means my time machine backups are very quick, and so are restores.

  • Summary: A very fast hard drive which I use to run virtual machines off of my macbook pro since I don't have the disc space on my tiny SSD. Runs just as fast as the internal drive: no lag even when playing games!

Super fast cutting edge hard drive.

Kate Stokes, Amazon
26 July 2012
  • Summary: This hard drive is super, super fast. I was surprised that a conventional mechanic hard drive could read and write so fast. The included Thunderbolt cable is a fairly expensive item in its own right so that is a big bonus.
