Pros: -This is very durable, even after a couple drops on hard floor, it has surprisingly still functioned great. -The firewire ports makes data transfer very very fast and convenient, great for moving and storing hundreds of GB's at once if that's what you need.
Cons: Price may be costly, but it has been worth it thus far for me..
Other Thoughts: The fact that it's mac compatible makes it very easy to transfer between mac and windows.

Pros: Another great product from WD. I use it on my Macbook Pro. Totally reliable and plenty fast for full HD multi-camera playback and editing with Final Cut Pro X. There's nothing to say - it just works!
Cons: Would be nice if it could be backward compatible with a USB or even Firewire output, just for compatability with other non-Thunderbold systems.

Pros: Easy to reconfigure to RAID 1 for Time Machine RAID 1 drives are hot swappable Thunderbolt allows up to 5 devices to daisy chain Fast Good value
Cons: None so far
Other Thoughts: I reconfigured the Duo tp Raid 1 to use for system backups. With redundant on site backups and a cloud backup I feel my data is pretty safe. The Duo has been running iMac Time Machine backups for several weeks without a hiccup. Backups are so fast and seamless I never know they are happening unless I happen to notice the LED on the front of the Duo flickering.
Currently the Duo is daisy chained down stream from a 3TB Thunderbolt 2 drive. Both drives work flawlessly.
I'm so satisfied with this drive that I am strongly considering getting another to leave in RAID 0 for rendering video.

Pros: Silent, low power, reliable (so far). The small form factor and self-powered aspects are pluses as well.
Other Thoughts: I use this drive to provide Time Machine backups for the 3 Macs in the house. Two of my Macs have USB2 ports, so these ports dominate the write speeds to the disk. Even though the TM backups took 20 or 30 min each, these were the first time backups which amounted to 60-90GB. Incremental backups will be much quicker. Pretty good drive, prefer WD over Seagate. And the price was right. :o)

Pros: I was looking for an external hard drive that I could use to back up my pc and expand my xbox capacity without spending a ton of money on them. Two of these hard drives where exactly what I needed.
Cons: It took me a while to find a couple of programs that would reformat these drives correctly because they wouldn't show up in windows 7 correctly to just reformat them from windows 7. This is not really a con because these drives are meant to be used with a mac.
