Saved hours of frustration

  • Excerpt: Once I figured out that I needed to separate capture folders from project files on separate disks, my existing setup was so slow that I almost gave up video editing! Then I discovered the VelociRaptor. With 10,000 rpm, RAID 0, and thunderbolt connections it is screamingly fast and now allows me to edit in realtime without skipped frames. An excellent buy and strongly recommended.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast
  • Cons: None

2TB My Book VelociRaptor Duo Thunderbolt

  • Excerpt: I am using the drive to back up photos and files from a PC when I switched to a MAC. One problem with MACs is that they don't have enough places to plug in accessories (and some won't work on a hub). The thunderbolt connection has solved this problem.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible, Thunderbolt Connection

Great addition to photo workflow

  • Excerpt: I use this as the primary working storage for my photo archive. With the drives configured for mirroring, you get protection from hard drive failure and the Thunderbolt connection and high speed drives give enough performance for day to day use in managing large RAW files.

  • Excerpt: Purchased for a new MacPro for media storage and "Time Machine" (backup). I've just started using it but so far everything has been great. Worked right away, large media files work well with Final Cut Pro video editing. It is doing exactly what I want. 10,000 rpm hard drives are close to SSD speeds for a fraction of the current price of 2T of storage. The Thunderbolt interface does a great job of moving lots of data quickly.

High Speed Drive Suitable for Editing

Ryan the Motion Graphics Designer, B&H Photo
16 December 2014
  • Excerpt: I did a lot of research on external drives/RAID arrays with USB 3.0 and/or Thunderbolt and found this drive to be the fastest desktop option available aside from a RAID setup using SSDs and USB 3.0. The real speed comes from this drive's RAID 0 / Striped out-of-the-box formatting combined with the transfer speed of Thunderbolt connection. The only downside to this setup is that if just one of the two drives in this setup goes down, then you will lose all of your data.
