Perfect, except...

10 February 2015
  • 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...

Good performance, potential issues with reliability

Anonymous, Newegg
26 September 2013
  • Pros: It had a good performance and matched my expectation when worked.
  • Cons: My working environment requires large but relatively short-lived backups. Average size of backup is 74GB and backups are performed four times a day. I used the storage in RAID1 configuration. After four months of usage I noticed that some backups fail because storage unexpectedly run out of room....

Pretty good performance, but overpriced.

  • Summary: I got this for a 2013 Mac Mini I will be configuring as a file server. Before I put it in production, I am doing some significant testing. 1) Speed is pretty decent. Below readings are from a benchmark tool from Blackmagicdesign.

Bleeding Edge, Fastest HDD external to date. Raid 1, Raid 0, 2TB X 2 HDD

Darrell L., Newegg
13 January 2013
  • Summary: Though certainly bleeding edge, this is certainly cool, and almost counts as a backup (automatic, redundant, *-off site*). Fastest speeds on all counts. Three year warranty: better than minimum (vs 1 yr), but don’t get me started on the fake hard drive shortage, the wink and the nod between this new...
  • Pros: -The RAID option is awesome. 2TB redundant (Raid 1) or 4TB Speedy (Raid 0) or just 2 disks, etc. -The hard drives are easy to open and swap out if needs be. How unlike Mac -eh? But this is WD and none of that Mac stuff here. This is a HUGE plus for the enclosure. Really high end. I likes it. The ...
  • Cons: No USB or Mac’s beloved Firewire? You drop how-ever-much this costs and they can’t add USB or Firewire port? Unacceptable. Also it’s quite bulky, but that’s understandable. Also, no on/off switch. 2/3rds of the price of this external HDD is this fancy enclosure, it should have ALL the bells, whis...

quiet and so far reliable, but expensive (cables) and not fast

  • Summary: Overall, have liked this drive for backup. However, though it is quiet, it is very slow and the cables are not included and very expensive. Overall, decent drive and has worked.

Needed PC storage - Great Customer Service on Return

Marketing Diva, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Our IT guy steered me to the wrong storage device... this is for MAC, not PC. My IT dude was a little embarrassed when he realized I ordered from his link for my PC storage. He did a Simpson's "Doh" when I read the package to him when it arrived. I'm sure it's a great device as the ratings are high.

Nice drive BUT!!!!!!!

Francis C. Bicking, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: Here is the thing with this drive. Once you get it to work it is great. But I have to take down the stars for the poor software and the poor support. First let me say that the drive was recognized right away after I pulled it in. I then installed the utilities and that is when things went bad.

Taking away too much for adding Thunderbolt

Matt Hausig, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: This is one of the first Thunderbolt external storage drives available. What's interesting about it is that there is an almost identical model available using USB 3. Both of these models use green drives in RAID 1 or 0, and considering the lack of fans, it is probably best to go for redundancy...

The jury is still out

Themarlin, Amazon
10 September 2012
  • Summary: After receiving the hard drive I haven't had much of a chance to use it. But after a short trial run I really couldn't see any large significant difference between it and my older model. I will need to check back with you later.
