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

Good drive

  • Excerpt: Got this on sale as a Thunderbolt audio drive for my project studio. I use the two thunderbolt ports to connect to my Mac and my other thunderbolt drive - so this sits in the middle of the chain. Th other drive holds my virtual instruments and samples.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Fast

Very Fast External Drive

metamorphis8, B&H Photo
8 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I have only owned the drive for a couple of weeks as of this writing, so I cannot speak to the long term reliability of a spinning disk system. However, it is by far the fastest external drive that I have used. It reads and writes at approximately 350 mbs which is faster than external ssds.
  • Pros: Very Fast
  • Cons: Limited Controls

well-balanced between speed and capacity

  • 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. So far so good after the replacement and I'm satisfied with the service.

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.

Should have more ports.

MussSyke, Amazon
16 October 2012
  • Summary: I am not taking price into account for this review: as it is electronics, it should drop immensely, soon. All the hard drive basics are good. It has fast, reliable drives and a fast, soon to be standard connection.

Significant premium for sequential speed

Dave "Dave", Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: The big draw of this is obviously Thunderbolt and the Velociraptor drives. And yes, both are fast, but WD makes another Thuderbolt product that costs 2/3 of what this system does, and has 3 times the storage.
