      I am using this for my video media to edit off of, and I have a backup of the drive just in case. I feel pretty condident about having my data on it, and copying to it from the old drive was SUPER fast with the Thunderbolt, and editing from it is FAST too. I highly recommend this for dependability and speed, such as video editing. I use FCP X. Only downside is only one thunderbolt port, so no daisychaining.

      It Works

      I use as temporary storage space for raw files. Nice that it's a thunderbolt interface. It would be nice for it to have the daisy chain t-bolt capability, it only has one port.

                  I really like this hard drive. It's quite fast, which is key when using high definition footage. My favorite part about it is the on/off switch so you can control it. I wish it were smaller and had a case, but other than that it's awesome!

                      This drive is super fast with the thunderbolt connection. I've got it running to the Belkin dock into my macbook pro and it's very snappy. I have been using it to work on photos etc via lightroom and the performance is top notch.

                          I use this drive for backup and original footage storage for FCPX on a macBook Pro Retina. It is fast, and the USB3 and Thunderbolt connections provide valuable versatility. FCPX libraries can be quickly moved between drives and computers as needed.

                          I also use the faster G-Technology 2TB G-Drive Pro 7200 RPM w/Thunderbolt as the primary video library drive for the system.

                          Use it as a media drive (in process of converting old camcorder tapes to digital files) on an iMac. Very fast and quiet. Multiple connection cables included. Highly recommend.
