Super fast external hard drives for Macs are expensive right ...

David S Cohen, Amazon
28 December 2015
  • Summary: Super fast external hard drives for Macs are expensive right now and this the only non flash drive that met my requirements. I use store large sample libraries for composing and needing something affordable and fast. This is a great drive and so far so good.

ludicrous speed

Mark Lambertson, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Substantially faster (3-4x) than the internal hard drive. I wish I had bought two!

  • 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.

Exceeded Expectations

Bill Jordan, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • 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.

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

Mark B. Hancock, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • 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.

10,000RPM drives excellent over Thunderbolt 2.

Mike Jandreau, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Very fast speeds, very good storage. It's a bit pricey compared to some other devices out there, but keep in mind that this is a 10,000RPM drive, versus 7200, which means you're reading and writing data faster. My only complaint is how loud it can be.

great performance for a reasonable price

Rhodes, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • Summary: Amazing drive for video editing and anything where you need the disk speed. I tested 350MB/s or higher read and write using the black magic disk speed test. Using it for a 16+ angle multicam edit now (all proress 422 clips) with solid performance.

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

Chris M, Amazon
28 November 2012
  • 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.

Amazing speed for a niche audience

Shane O. Laake, Amazon
27 November 2012
  • Summary: 10,000 RPM drives never quite caught on in the consumer market. They came close with the earliest Velociraptor drives, which offered world class speeds, albeit at a higher price and smaller capacity than mainstream drives. SSDs eventually took over the faster though costlier and smaller niche.
