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

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: 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: 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

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.
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).
Summary: This product provides an extremely fast Thunderbolt solution for Mac. I measured over 400 Mb/s. Very close to a SSD in performance. Compared to the MyBook Thunderbolt 4 Gig drive I recently reviewed it is much faster. The performance comes at a cost however. The drive is significantly more noisy.
