Nothing but good things to say

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

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.
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.
