Great product for a great price!

  • Excerpt: I edit a lot of video with a small budget. I purchased two of these and it increased my productivity greatly. I can render projects incredibly fast now. Now my old firewire 800 drives collect dust. My only regret is not buying more when B&H had them on sale.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast

Nothing but good things to say

Dave Allmon, Amazon
4 April 2015
  • Summary: I've run it both as RAID 0 (Stripe) and RAID 1 (Mirror). I have it in mirror now. It is only a tiny bit slower than in stripe, and is fully redundant. The Thunderbolt interface and 10k RPM drives make this thing almost as fast as an internal SATA drive. Sound is quiet.

Good balance of speed/capacity/price

  • Excerpt: I bought my 2nd one recently, run in RAID 1 for redundancy. Keep my video on one, photos on the other. Speed is great, capacity is OK by today's standards, but not amazing since you can only get up to 2TBs.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast
  • Cons: Bulky

Saved hours of frustration

  • Excerpt: Once I figured out that I needed to separate capture folders from project files on separate disks, my existing setup was so slow that I almost gave up video editing! Then I discovered the VelociRaptor.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast
  • Cons: None

NOT HARDWARE RAID, BUT STILL IS VERY FAST

Pete G., Amazon
22 March 2015
  • Summary: I was going to send this drive back because I believe it misleads people into thinking it is a HARDWARE ONLY standalone RAID device... IT IS NOT!! This is simply two drives that have Thunderbolt interfaces to the Mac. All RAID is done in software within Mac OSX. That was upsetting.

2TB My Book VelociRaptor Duo Thunderbolt

18 February 2015
  • Excerpt: I am using the drive to back up photos and files from a PC when I switched to a MAC. One problem with MACs is that they don't have enough places to plug in accessories (and some won't work on a hub). The thunderbolt connection has solved this problem.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Thunderbolt Connection

  • Excerpt: Great external drive and fast at that. Had been using for music storage and photo management and processing. Fortunately, I kept a back up on my Sinology NAS because after 2 months, it has failed.
