Speed

  • Excerpt: I felt lucky to find a Thunderbolt drive at such a great price. This drive makes use of the Thunderbolt connection on my Macbook Pro and allows me to use it for photo storage. It is as fast as the internal drive so it expands the system with no loss in speed. Highly recommended if you have that Thunderbolt connection unused. The drive comes with a cable and is formatted for a Mac. Easy setup.
  • Pros: Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible

great performance for a reasonable price

  • 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. Relatively quiet compared to other raid drives and spins up very quickly, hardly any delay compared to other 7200rpm drives. Haven't had it for long, so not sure how reliable it will be in the long run.

  • Excerpt: I bought this to replace a LaCie 2Big drive that failed and took my most important files with it. Granted I have completely reworked my back-up system, but I prefer the speed of this drive, the quiet operation and the confidence knowing the folks who attempted the repair on the Seagate drives in the LaCie said they have far more love for WD vs. Seagate.

10,000RPM drives excellent over Thunderbolt 2.

Mike Jandreau, Amazon

  • 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. When you're reading or writing a lot of data, you can head the drive heads moving, which can be loud.

The perfect fit

  • Excerpt: This bad boy is my media drive. I was hard-pressed to find a better solution. If you want speed, space, and affordability then this is the perfect drive. I use it with my 2013 MacPro, and together they are crazy fast. I also like the fact that I can replace the drives when they're filled up.
