Been working very well to store my 4K raw footage by Micks360
I think it's a great raid, very fast. My only issue is that it doesn't have a thunderbolt cable with it.
Couldn't be easier by Beholdengto
Loaded and updated the software then created the RAID in about 10mins. This drive is like childs play and super quiet to boot.
Great backup for all your vital files. by Ash727
Great performance and speed. Matches my Mac. Easy to install.
pretty easy to set up for average user by sciguy2013
really solid device, very easy to set up if you're a person with average computer skills. not sure how it works for Mac computers, but it's really great on my PC. very reliable so far, i've only had the device a few months though. also very fast for accessing files and copying files to the drive. tons of storage space, great design and color is very classy. i thought i would be able to use this as a "portable" drive, it's portable but very clunky so i recommend setting it up and leaving it in one place, but that is just my opinion.
Can only use with Apple products by Fozgrim
Bought this product by accident not realizing it was compatible with Apple Mac computers. Solid sturdy build. Can be set-up for 4TB storage or 2TB RAID.
Returned this for a pc compatible storage device.
Plenty of space by MacMan88
Easy to set up, fast and quiet but a bit heavy. Used as both back up and main storage of image files.
Great for RAW photos by GinnyMae
I take a lot of raw images and even though the files are large, the Thunderbolt does not hesitate to copy quickly to my mac book pro or air for editing. I also like that we can share the drive so others in the household can get to the files without any problems or delay.
Great Product by Lobo85
It does everything I need it to do and does it fast.
Works like a champ. by mnMark
Device works great through the ThunderBolt interface on my iMac; the speed is great and the raid configuration tool (speed vs reliability) was trivial to set up.
The price is definitely steep; hopefully it will come down in future generations as the underlying tech cannot be any more expensive than USB 3 or eSATA. Also: WD, come on...where is the cable in the box? That is just cheap.
Fair Thunderbolt Drive by FMOmbr
Limited availability of thunderbolt drives that have mirroring. This was the only one I could get my hands on. Installation seemed to go easily, until I went to configure the Raid 1 configuration. I had to call technical support and download new software for the mirroring to work. After using the drive for a couple weeks, one of the drives reported a failure. After about 6 hours to rebuild the failed drive, everything is up and functioning.
