Boot from SSD external thunderbolt with this and iMAC!!

ibucky, Amazon
31 July 2015
  • Summary: I have a 2011 imac, which the internal hard drive just kept getting slower. So I purchased this and a Samsung SSD 1T. WOW...does it work good. The real test is time. Let's see what happens over time. But now I feel like I have a brand new imac. It did cost way more than I wanted to spend.

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

Justin Edmund, Amazon
21 July 2015
  • 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: It was easy to connect to my Seagate external drive, it works well. Only thing I wish was that the Thunderbolt cable was included as part of the package.

Read/write issues resolved

John Kotarski, Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I am running Mac OSX 10.7.5 using the Backup Plus 1Tb and Backup Plus 3Tb which I connected using a USB 3.0 port and, with the Seagate Thunderbolt adapter, the Thunderbolt port. I could read and write to the drive using USB but could only read when using the Thunderbolt port.

BOOTABLE on Mac but Beware the Extra Seagate Driver for Big Drives

G. Kuo, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: This desktop Seagate Thunderbolt adapter has been praised for its usability with drives other than just the Seagate goFlex encased drives. Indeed it is true, you can attach bare external drives if you also arrange for some physical support for the drives. That's already covered in other reviews.

Fast and daisy chains, but iffy value proposition and no cable

Indy Reviewer, Amazon
12 March 2013
  • Summary: The Seagate Backup Plus Desktop Thunderbolt Adapter is a specialty device for users who don't have a USB 3.0 connection, who want to daisy chain multiple drives, or who want to do substantial video capture and transfer.

Effective once working correctly

The Fiddl3r, Amazon
8 March 2013
  • Summary: When I received the Thunderbolt interface I had already been using my 4TB Backup Plus drive for a few days with the USB 3.0 interface. Reading the (minimal) documentation told me that I had to install a driver to be able to use the drive with both USB and Thunderbolt I thought that might be a likely...

Seems priced for the market, based on what it does and doesn't have

Dave "Dave", Amazon
25 February 2013
  • Summary: Taken in a vacuum, I wouldn't be impresssed by this device, but if you look around for Thunderbolt docks and adapters, the price is reasonable. PROS: 1) Works fine. I have another dock, and I find their performance about the same.

Works on Mac and Windows 7; one of the only ones.

L. Irish "Tone Quest", Amazon
6 February 2013
  • Summary: After trying a Pegasus J4 Thunderbolt Drive Enclosure (didn't work at all with a late 2012 iMac 27"; worked on Mac OSX ML on an Option Boot but DIDN'T work at all with Windows 7), I tried the Seagate Backup Plus Adapter, and it worked perfectly in an external SSD setup...

FAST.

28 December 2012
  • Summary: This Thunderbolt interface rocks. Immediately obvious that it's far faster than USB 3.0. At this point I'm gonna give it 4 stars instead of 5 because I'm having some flaky problems with it on boot.
