Perfect!

  • Excerpt: I bought this drive to move a ton of video files from several different drives into one place that is easily and quickly accessible to FCPX. It was a pain to gather up the drives from the different filming events to put something together. And invariably, I would need just one more USB port. With the Thunderbolt connection, speed is no longer an issue either. Took me 4 days to copy all the video over but it was well worth it.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible

  • Excerpt: I planned to use this drive to just make my home Mac storage system big enough to hold all home videos and photos. It was great, until I realized it cannot be used as an encrypted raid 0 drive (apparently that's true of all dual drives, which I just learned). Oh well...

  • Excerpt: I am a professional Wedding Photographer. This external drive is great for about a year of raw images from a busy wedding season. I love that is is just plug and go. I set it to raid 1 with the easy to use software and have a backup of my photos as soon as they import into Lightroom.

WD 8TB My Book Thunderbolt Duo

Linni, B&H Photo
27 January 2015
  • Excerpt: This will really fit the bill for me. Heavy enough to not spill over so easily. My previous 1TB could not stand up on my desktop. The smallest encounter caused it to flop. One little FYI, I wanted it to operate as a dual drive. For whatever reason it would not format as such. Turned out that it was not receiving enough power plugged into my power strip. Which didn't even occur to me. The help line sorted it out.

A Problem From Day One

Art, Amazon
19 January 2015
  • Summary: The internal drive of the My Book was defective and was unable to download it's own software to my computer and causing a problem with the computer sleep/wake mode not allowing the monitor to come on when the computer was turned on. It inactivated the mouse and the keyboard as well. I Called WD customer service and received no solution. The person I spoke to wasn't aware of the software update.

  • Excerpt: Bought for use as a backup drive for a new iMac. Setup was simple and easy. Have had it for just a short time and since its a backup drive I haven't had to do anything other than set it up.

  • Summary: With the Thunderbolt connection this unit works as fast as the internal drive. I moved all my movies and photos to this device. Forget USB and Firewire connections. I use them as well but they don't hold a candle to Thunderbolt.
