there isn't a really great alternative for easily hot-swapping drives with Thunderbolt

Summary: I bought two of these, two years apart, for my storage drives. Unfortunately, there isn't a really great alternative for easily hot-swapping drives with Thunderbolt. Thunderbolt is still great and the fastest out there, so I was willing to pay the price for it.
Summary: After having great success with the portable 2.5" drive version, the Seagate Desktop Thunderbolt Dock was something I was very excited to try. And when I replaced my Late-2012 iMac's 3TB 3.5" hard drive with an SSD, I finally had an excuse to get one of these.
A great way to get thunderbolt speed on multiple drives.

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.
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.
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. Highly recommend with 4TB drive
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?
Summary: Great little SATA to Thunderbolt adapter. One of the cheapest options I've seen out there. I found that buying the adapter, cable and drive separately was cheaper than buying the whole unit sold boxed together.
Summary: The only cozy thing about the whole deal is that WD thunderbolt 8gb is not too much more expensive than this adapter and 3 tb seagate harddrive. Other than this fact, device works works well except kanex cable, i wouldbuy original apple cable
