A great way to get thunderbolt speed on multiple drives.

Rocco Schiralli, Amazon
22 February 2015
  • Summary: This is a great product. It is the only way to daisy chain thunderbolt drives because it has its own power source. Portable drives that use Bus power are only able to run themselves and can only exist at the end of a daisy chain. If you are brave enough to remove a drive from its case then most drives (Western Digital excepted) can be raised to thunderbolt speed using this product even though the packaged interface is USB3.0 or less. Amazing!

Super pleased.

  • Summary: Hitachi 2TB just arrived to mate with my second Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Thunderbolt Adapter purchased at the same time. The drive mounts up as a "Hitachi" and not HGST, which gives me warm fuzzy confidence that it's not some cheap knock off. The drive is brand new and not used. The shipping from Oceanside Marketplace was just fine, housed in foam with double box and airbag stuffing.

  • Summary: This is absolutely amazing. I put all my movies and TV shows on here connected to an Imac and off I went. Combining the power of the Plex app it's the ultimate home theater companion. It's incredibly fast and has no delay whatsoever.

The Mac Tortiose and the SSD Hare.

Dr. M "fleemur", Amazon
24 October 2014
  • Summary: A really handy device, especially when paired with a SSD. Just the little 120 GB drive has supercharged my mid-2011 iMac and made my HiRes music listening experience faster, easier and cleaner. Imaging what it will be like if I add the 1TB 840 Evo? It will be like the Mac HD turtle meeting the 840 Evo SSD rabbit for the first time in a race, except slow & steady doesn't win the race in this case.

  • Excerpt: Bought it when it was on the daily deals and almost cancelled when I saw some negative reviews about this HDD. So glad I did not. This hard drive is really fast when connected to USB3. With HD Tune I got 147MB/s Read speeds. Much faster then my other external HDDs.

  • Excerpt: This unit is the "Back Up Plus" which is much better than the cheaper "Expansion" drive at a better price. Very happy with the unit very easy plug and play. Chuffed with the price, absolute bargain.

  • Excerpt: Making a sad face. It is a really good drive. Extremely fast and all, but after three weeks it just died. Drive no longer spins up and the power supply emits a high-pitched whine. So that's pretty nice.
