  • Summary: I bought this recently and one drive was failed yesterday.....(no more spinning sound) I took this as my bad luck and I am looking forward to putting it back to five stars later on after the replacement.

It solved a lot of my HD video editing issues....

A. Lewis II, Amazon

  • Summary: This HD is perfect for people who edit a lot of HD video. I use it with my Adobe Premiere 6.0 and I have absolutely no video lag or pixelation issues (which occur when you scrub thru video to edit). I bought it because it is a much cheaper alternative to buying SSDs at this time: 500Gb SSD is about $400-500. 2000Gb VelociRaptor is $429. Four times the space, at a quarter the price.

  • Summary: Extremely fast combo, I hit about 270 Mbs with one unit. I use this when editing footage in FCPX. If you need fast array for cheap this is the one.

As fast a dual hard drive RAID0 unit as you'll find

Mark B. Hancock "Jonmarsh", Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: At this new lower price, this is a much better deal (I have another I bought when they first came out). The velociraptor drive is a 10,000 RPM high performance drive designed for servers and workstations. Put two of them in RAID0 with a Thunderbolt interface and you get about the max throughput possible short of a similar SSD configuration, but at much lower price for the storage capacity.

Exceeded Expectations

16 January 2014
  • Summary: This drive had all the fine characteristics I'd read about. But I was happily surprised to find it extremely quiet as well. Very fast, easy to set up, attractive on the desk. Highly recommended.

Excellent external storage for Apple's new Late 2013 Mac Pro

Chris M, Amazon
7 January 2014
  • Summary: This is a great external storage solution for the new (Late 2013) Apple Mac Pro. You get 2TB of storage via Thunderbolt that performs similarly to an SSD (over 350MB/s read/write) at a (current) price point that makes it good value. It sleeps automatically when the Mac Pro sleeps and wakes instantly with the Mac Pro. It's very quiet.

Great drive, but only if you have the need

J. Peplinski, Amazon
20 November 2012
  • Summary: The Western Digital My Book VelociRaptor Duo is a great drive at a pretty steep price. You really need to know your needs before dropping this many clams on a hard drive, though. It is designed for the video or photographic professional who need the speed for editing HD video. If you are looking for a device to backup your personal documents, photos and videos, there are probably lots of 2TB USB 3.0 devices that are going to be fast enough for you and much more cost...

Blazing speed for video & other disk-intensive applications

Dave Millman "davemill", Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: (Please note: After I wrote this review, I noticed it was filled with geek-speak like RAID0, JBOD and DMG. If this is greek to you, DO NOT buy this drive. Look at a Drobo 5D 5-bay Storage Array, Thunderbolt/USB 3.0 instead. Drobo is a no-brainer, plug-and-play disk storage and redundant backup system that just works. If you like arguing RAID0 vs RAID1, read on) This drive is perfect for Mac users who require a high performance disk subsystem.
