Other Thoughts:

I'm usually a LaCie guy for storage, but this item is really good for the money, and the performance is there. The biggest myth out there is that you need Thunderbolt to have fast read-write speeds; but if you're not moving data between SSDs, you're not going to even remotely approach Thunderbolt's 10Gb/s speeds. Firewire 800 and Thunderbolt will both get you about 80MB/s of real-world read-write speed when you have 7200 RPM disks in your laptop and in your external drive. The potential read-write speeds that the bus can handle won't matter if you have two hard disks spinning as fast as they can.

That being said, this product is every bit as good as any other external drive that doesn't have an SSD. For the money, it can't be beat.
