Excerpt: Extremely fast compared to the USB 2 drives I had been using for video editing. No issues with rendering or playback, even with large and complicated timelines in Final Cut Pro X. Lots of storage space, plus, I set up RAID 1, which eases my anxiety about losing FCPX data from the large projects I'm working on. Very easy to select and set up the RAID. (Even though my iMac was reading the drive, at first I got an error message when trying to set up RAID I.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast, Includes T-bolt Cable, Security Of Having Raid 1
Excerpt: I ordered this product by mistake thinking I had a thunderbolt port only to find out I did not. B&H's customer service team that helped me process the return was fantastic. I could not have hoped for a smoother process.
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 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.
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.
