Summary: Aside from that, the only real con is also the price.
Pros: The drive is nice. It's fast (especially when using the thunderbolt connection.) It's made of solid constructed materials, and I would assume it's fair to say this thing could take a beating. The drive is very, very quiet and doesn't vibrate much when it's running. Not as much compared to my other external drives, too. I have not tried opening the drive to see if the internal drive is swappable. Pretty nice to have such a large volume of storage at the speed you can h...
Cons: Windows didn't particularly "play well" with the drive, at first. Even using the instructions with the drive, I had to use some prior Windows-knowledge to get the drive actually recognized by the OS.
Summary: Very pricy considering the capacity and performance when compared to other USB 3.0 capable external 2.5 inch drives. However, it's on par with the very limited selection of Thunderbolt capable drives in the same category.
Pros: Contains a Seagate 5200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s HDD.
Cons: The drive does run a bit warmer than any other external 2.5 drives I have personally used. Getting into the upper 90's F sitting on the desktop. Kept it a bit cooler sitting on top of the cases since both have upper exhaust fans.
Pros: I've had this drive since it was first announced and it has been a great performer. I have stored all my Lightroom photos on it, and while not as fast as an SSD, it is as fast as an internal spinning disk. 95 MB/s read and write on Blackmagic Disk Speed Test. Comes with a $50 Thunderbolt cable.
Summary: Great performance overall, much faster than expected. Very quiet and cool. My only complaint is the interface as well as the ease of setup. The wizard did not work as expected so I had to figure out how to switch to raid 1 which involved deleting the previous raid set up and creating a new one.....weird. Once it was set up it worked perfectly.
Pros: Compact, Fast Connectivity, Faster than expected, Quiet
Summary: 1) Price is way lesser than western digital and Seagate and better looking too. 2) Small, compact and very light and the material used is of good quality. 3) I noticed that it doesn't vibrate a lot comparing to other hard disks during data transfer nor does it make any noise. 4) Green light when you connect to USB 2 and blue light for USB 3 5) Option to encrypt your data 6) 3 year warranty, so retain your bill and box if you have issues (I?
