    This thing smokes! I came very close to buying a new Macbook that I can't afford, not now. The G-Tech Thunderbolt drive totally set my computer free. I edit tons of video and motion graphic files, this thing makes sport of it. It isn't cheap and I sure didn't want to come off of the money, but after using this I can't afford not to have it. My external monitor hooked right up to its 2nd port. After I transferred my files from my old external, my projects opened right up without having to relink. And, it's by a brand that I really trust.It does have a VERY annoying light that constantly strobes. I'm not a fan of the big aluminum shoebox design. Mac only. You have to manually turn the thing on/off. And it doesn't come with a Thunderbolt cable (so add $$ to the price). But all and all and very pleased, tickled even. I do hate that freak'n light though.

    Don't expect this drive to be as fast as your internal Apple Flash drive. But it's fast enough. Although...mine failed right out of the box and wouldn't communicate with my Mac. Called G Raid support - excellent. We tested it and except for the second of about thirty tests it performed above 300 MB/s. I was first using a 6' cable - then we tried the supplied 3' cable - no issues. Reversed the 6' cable and everything was in spec. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed but don't yet have that warm fuzzy feeling.

              This is used as main data storage for ~/Pictures and ~/Music. I like the device. It's quiet, fast and stays cool. The only quirk is that it goes to sleep often, no matter my energy savings settings in Mavericks, the drive will seemingly sleep, and have to be woken to save/work on data within those slices. Still researching ...

                      This drive is super fast and plenty quiet for my needs! Having the built in RAID is nice, since I don't have to fuss with RAID setups. If I had any complaint, it's that, unlike other similar Thunderbolt hard drives, this drive does NOT automatically power up and power down when it detects a signal through the Thunderbolt cable. This means that you have to reach behind and turn of the drive when you are finished with it. Yes, I've been doing this for years with older drives, but it just stinks to know that other drives like the LaCie and Western Digital can automatically power up through the Thunderbolt cable.

                          Use this for high-end video projects. Alone (not daisy chained or configured for faster speed than normal), I get 285mb/s write speed. 290 read speed.

                          I often hear people say that g-tech isn't worth the price. I disagree. This is super fast, wonderfully quiet (compared to my last drive), and it has been a joy to work with. I've owned 2 other g-tech drives – never had to revert to a backup because one died on me. Don't expect this one to tank on me either. Highly recommended. Will probably get another.

                              I use this to connect to my new imac and to keep my client files separate from my personal files on my computer. It's lightning fast and feels like it's an internal hard drive! Awesome product.

                                  Using this drive for my sound composition libraries. Seems to work really well, of course it is fast on thunderbolt.

                                  Returned a LaCie because of loud fan noise. While this is bigger in size and storage, it is much quieter which was very important to me. I have set up my iTunes library on the drive, and even though it is external, the access is quick.
