Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo

PC Magazine
13 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo ($849.99 list) is one of the largest capacity drives you can buy. Dual 4TB drives together in a RAID 0 array means that you can hold up to 8TB on one logical volume. While this technically means you can store files larger than 4TB (like raw video or a massive database), it also means you can store a mind-boggling large number of smaller files (say every photo a professional photographer has taken since 1997, in native RAW...
  • Pros: Large capacity. User serviceable. Can be daisy chained using dual Thunderbolt ports. Comes with Thunderbolt cable (at 8TB capacity). Can be set up for RAID 1 for data redundancy.
  • Cons: Only Thunderbolt interface. No visual capacity indicator.

  • Conclusion: Essentially what we have here is an external drive which allows you to seamlessly work on your Mac with heavy workloads and use the My Book Thunderbolt Duo as a backup device and a primary drive to work on without any lag or slowdown in work. So we have speed, now we just need to have prices brought down as Thunderbolt drives are still a tad bit expensive compared to USB 3.0 drives.

Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo

Macworld
24 April 2012
  • Excerpt: (1 items) Western Digital’s My Book Thunderbolt Duo is about as big as WD’s My Book Studio II , and the two drives have similar cases, The obvious difference are the different activity indicator lights on the front of each drive. The other major difference is that the My Book Thunderbolt Duo, as the name indicates, has Thunderbolt connectors—two of them, to be exact. With its two Thunderbolt ports, the My Book Thunderbolt Duo easily fits into a Thunderbolt daisy chain.

Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo Review: It's A Giant Gorilla

Gizmodo
5 July 2012
  • Excerpt: Western Digital’s inevitable Thunderbolt offering is missing solid state guts — and that hurts it a lot. But what it lacks in speed it makes up for in capacity. It’s an enormous vault with more space than most humans will ever need.

Test My Book Thunderbolt Duo 4TB

Macwelt
16 August 2012
  • Excerpt: Unter einer Kunststoffklappe bietet das Gehäuse des My Book Thunderbolt Duo Platz für zwei 3,5 Zoll große Green-Festplatten. Die Laufwerke lassen sich sehr leicht selber tauschen, bei einem späteren Aufrüsten oder dem Austausch einer defekten Festplatte kann das sehr praktisch sein. Außer zwei Thunderbolt-Anschlüssen findet man ansonsten keine weiteren Verbindungsmöglichkeiten zum Mac. Ein Betrieb an älteren Macs ohne Thunderbolt-Schnittstelle ist also nicht möglich.
