The Mac Tortiose and the SSD Hare.

Lee Montagna "fleemur", Amazon
23 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.

Great SATA to Thunderbolt adapter!!

Kelly, Amazon

  • 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. I've ordered a separate one of these and just plugged in a SATA SSD card for REALLY fast speeds. That is the option I"ve found to be most useful, using currently as a cache for my After Effects and Photoshop applications, and it has really sped things up.

  • 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

Substantial Upgrade

C. T. Armstrong, Amazon
29 October 2013
  • Summary: I have a 27" iMac running 10.9 and the throughput of the USB was around 22 MBps and after the update of the adapter the throughput is now 150 MBps... ~7x faster That is pretty good.

Super speed boost!

Jack Crombie, Amazon
20 October 2013
  • Summary: I have used the same Seagate 4TB drive on the supplied USB3 dock and clocked about 89-95MB/sec read/write speeds. Using the exact same spinning disk hard drive on the Thunderbolt adapter gave me 150MB/sec read/write speeds! I had 2 video editors working off this drive over gigabit and I was copying video clips to it locally. it was fantastic! I also used a second adapter with SSDs.

Backup your Mac and add a 2nd Monitor at the same time

Andrea Nelson, Amazon
4 September 2013
  • Summary: The STAE129 has a pass through Thunderbolt port that works with additional monitors. The Thunderbolt display from Apple is not compatible with non-Apple displays through the thunderbolt ports. If you try to connect a Thunderbolt to DVi adapter to the Thunderbolt display the additional monitor will not be recognized.

  • Summary: Overall this drive has been great. Have nearly filled it all up with movies and TV shows. Bought for about $150 and at the time it was cheaper than an internal HDD. Recommended.
  • Pros: -4Tb Size, -$/Gb, -LED indicators, -USB 2.0/3.0, -read/write speeds
  • Cons: -I find the included backup software a bit confusing, -no eSATA
