Deadlines rule our world. When digital storage is critical for your project, it had better be as fast and reliable as you are. In every office setting, it has to connect to any computer, deliver more than enough speed for the most demanding applications, and be completely reliable. Enter the LaCie d2 USB 3.0 Thunderbolt Series.
Units need clarification
Cons: Not utilizing the full Thunderbolt's and even USB3 speed.
Other Thoughts: It looks that two previous reviewers have confused bits and bytes. Shouldn't it be MB instead of Mb in certain places of the reviews?

Pros: You will NEVER see that 10Gb/s, that is the maximum throughput that the Thunderbolt port is capable of, the hard drive inside this external unit is still a spinning platter drive, so, since it is the slow point, you might get to see between 50-100Mb/s in transfer speeds. It's the hard drive inside that's slowing it down. Use an SSD in a thunderbolt enclosure and you will see 3-5 times that speed.
Other Thoughts: People should read up on technology before buying it!

Not what I expected...
Pros: Half of the speed transfering time comparing of an USB 2.0 external drive still better than nothing but the Thunderbolt wasn't 10X faster than USB 2.0
Cons: Copy and Paste or just transferring a single 50gb ISO file takes ~11minutes using thunderbolt connection on a Mac Pro I7 nov.2011.Comparing to my other Seagate USB 2.0 doing the same taking 27minutes. So, for 10X more speed than USB 2.0 I was expecting much less transferring time than I got. maybe I need to change something in my Mac Pro...
Other Thoughts: How to reach 10Gb/s ?
