This review is from: Seagate STAE128 Backup Plus Portable Thunderbolt Adapter
Pros: This adapter is great for moving large files off of a thunderbolt capable mac. I purchased several for use by my coworkers, we transfer very large (often 600GB -1 TB) video files on a regular basis. I like that the adapters work with all of the seagate drives that come with a USB 3.0 adapter because I dont have to worry about buying a new cable for each drive. I am also able to use the adapter with bare 2.5" hard drives.
Cons: This adapter only version does not come with a Thunderbolt cable, you must purchase it separately but the only cables I have seen (not that I have searched extensively) are from apple and about a mile longer than needed for a portable (used with a laptop) drive. I have purchased the 1TB thunderbolt drive that comes with this adapter and it comes with a cable that is about 19" long, it is perfect for what I do and I am a little bit upset that seagate supplies one for the 1TB drive but not for the adapter by itself.
Other Thoughts: All in all, a good price for a super fast HDD interface, just a little annoying that a cable is not supplied. 4 eggs because of that.READ FULL REVIEW
