Summary: Routinely get 1200 MB/sec read and write speeds in Blackmagic test. I use it to store my current Lightroom photography catalog (my archive photos are stored on a large RAID array), and it has noticeably enhanced the speed of Lightroom and Photoshop CC for importing, editing files in PS, and exporting. Plug and play...I simply plugged it into a Thunderbolt port on my Mac Pro, and it was ready to go.
Excerpt: I bought four of these, and hooked them up to my Mac Pro. Two of them are each plugged into a separate thunderbolt 2 port, so at any given time they are using two ports, not just one. Well, this setup is obnoxiously fast. See the blackmagic test attached here. That says it all. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Easy to setup (plug and play), no issues at all. Using Mac's embedded RAID software in disk utility to set this up as a RAID 0 array.
Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Quiet, Reliable, Versatile
Excerpt: Very quiet, *fast*, easy to use, comes preformatted for MAC and with the thunderbolt 2 cable included. The only downside is the LED that stays lit when connected to your computer. It's extremely bright, will hurt your eye if you're staring at it, and you can't turn it off. Seriously you can use it as a flash light. Dunno what they were thinking. I had to tape it over, since per their support it's not possible to dim it or turn it off.
Excerpt: I just received the Thunderbolt 2 drive. I waited through a back order from the manufacturer because 1) I have had excellent experiences with LaCie products and 2) The specs on this drive are outstanding. I connected the drive to my Windows laptop and... Nothing.
Summary: I was hoping this drive would be amazingly fast when I ordered it, and as soon as I plugged it in I was certainly not disappointed. The two SSDs inside combined via raid0 to deliver data faster than I can use it. This makes video editing on my machine a complete dream.
Summary: This unit has a very well designed enclosure, that operates very quiety, and with the ssds inside vibration is next to zero too. The RAID 0 system doubles the data access and write speeds and makes this the fastest and best value for money I could find. Totally a winner of a design.
