Comments about Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter:

I am using this with 2 Seagate 3 GB drives. One is a GoFlex and the other the newer MyBackup. The adapter works with both. I reformatted the MyBackup drive to a Mac OS format. The speed is noticeably faster than USB, FW400 or FW800. I would rate it 5 stars if it came with a Thunderbolt cable and was priced more reasonably.

Comments about Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter:

Upgrading from a good Dell system to a MacBookPro (Retina) with two Thunderbolt ports. Bought this speed up an existing GoFlex Desk 3TB drive from USB 3.0 to Thunderbolt Adaptors.

Installed in minutes. Speed is truly impressive.

Runs in daisy-chain with companion 3TB GoFlex disk purchased with adapter, and a T'bolt adapter for 2.5" GoFlex FreAgent 500GB drive for traveling.

    Comments about Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter:

    Simple and easy to use. Way better than USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 to backup or transfer files. Plugged in my SATA HDD and started backing up my entire Mac HDD and it only took about 15 mins compared to previously having to wait for up to 5-6 hrs.

    Thunderbolt is great!

      I do's exactly what it's supposed to, convert Any GoFlex Disk In a fast thunderbolt disk. Seagate very pro in packing a USB flash with the latest driver for 3 To Drives (The one I own). Very pleased.

      Comments about Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter:

      If you are looking for a swappable alternative to the limited amount of thunderbolt products available, this device fits. There isn't a on/off button and a drive will sit leaning in the holder, but the speed at which this device allows transfers is simply awesome.

            The Go Flex Thunderbolt Adapter is the quickest way to move data to your Seagate desk drive. Just detach the bottom of your drive and put it on the adapter. It is easy and mega fast. A great tool for the large backup needs! A thunderbolt cable will be needed. I highly recommend this product. B & H has the best price on it with speedy shipping. Thank you!

                  I bought this to speed up video editing on my Imac (extra hard drive space). Works very well. Wonder why they don't include the thunderbolt cable with the unit?

                  I use this product to adapt the GoFlex Desk Drive with Firewire 800 and USB 2.0 that I bought. It is easy to attach and runs beautifully. I edit high def video.

                  However, I found the price a little off-putting, since the adapter costs almost as much as the drive, itself.
