This review is from: LaCie d2 4TB USB 3.0 / Thunderbolt External Hard Drive 9000303 Silver
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.
People should read up on technology before buying it!
