  • Summary: I needed this for sample playback and recording to. It does the job without breaking a sweat. I looked at the cheaper alternatives but this has eliminated any headaches so it was worth the extra cost. Probably overkill for most peoples needs but it does what I needed it for.

Fast as ****

NS, Amazon

  • Summary: Wow, I was expecint this to be fast but yikes!. Am using this primarily for my extensive Itunes library alongside my Mac Mini (late 2012) is pretty much instantaneous for read & writing files while playing either music or videos. near silent operation, only noises are rare and barely audible squeaks as the disc arm moves about accessing & writing at once. This is Ideal for those with large Itune libraries and not a lot of patience for them.

Superb Quality!!

  • Summary: This external hard drive has been used for 3 months now in my small music studio set up.Connected to a Mac Book Pro it has been used nearly every day and has proved completely reliable so far. Set up was very easy with the supplied Thunderbolt cable.It is so efficient in operation that it is now taken for granted that previous problems with access times,etc,are a thing of the past. It's relatively small size and weight also make portabilty very easy.

Dazzling and Efficient

Post Scriptum, Amazon
4 December 2012
  • Summary: The name of this product is pretty self-explanatory: the device utilises a pair of Western Digital's fastest 1TB 10,000 RPM VelociRaptor hard drives (each one of which is currently retailing at about £300) in a sleek and stylish My Book enclosure. What this basically does - as the other reviews make clear - is to provide you with extraordinarily fast read and write speeds.

A very smart bit of kit

  • Summary: The WD My Book Velociraptor Duo is one heck of a hard drive, at one heck of a price. Firstly, set-up. For an expensive piece of kit, you have to give credit to WD for keeping it simple. A leaflet is supplied with dummy-friendly pictures which describe the following. 1. Plug in to mains. 2. Connect using the thunderbolt cable 3. Errr. That's it. The drive is blisteringly fast and is formatted for OS (ie it's for Mac computers).

Fast and handy external drives

R. Palmer "cr1vvens", Amazon

  • Summary: This is contains two 1TB VelociRaptor (10,000RPM) hard disks and uses the relatively new Thunderbolt connection. Newer Mac laptops have the Thunderbolt and this set of drives is formatted for use with OS. For now, I would imagine most people using this kind of thing would have an Apple computer as very few Windows PCs will have a Thunderbolt connector (though I do believe that there are/will be a number of motherboards being sold which do have it).
