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.
This review is from: LaCie d2 4TB USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt External Hard Drive 9000303
Pros: This drive does exactly what the hardware is capable of.
Other Thoughts: Thunderbolt has 10Gb/s of bandwidth which is very necessary when it is being daisy chained with other devices. Theoretically I believe Thunderbolt being a managed connection can transfer 1.25GB/s. Yes GigaBYTES per second. What that means is that even if you have Sata 3 in your computer and and two SSDs in Raid 0, Sata will run out of bandwidth before the Thunderbolt since Sata 3 is 6Gb/s. The point is so you can have multiple hard drives, monitors, etc all running off of one port. That is the purpose of the ridiculous (relatively) bandwidth. There should be no difference or extremely small difference in speed with this disk using a USB 3.0 or Thunderbolt connection since they both have a higher bandwidth than the disk is capable of. The point is you can daisy chain 8+ of these off the same connection using Thunderbolt and not hit a bottleneck.

This review is from: LaCie d2 3TB USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt External Hard Drive 9000353
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?
