"Great Drive"on by MaeLnuldd
Pros good value, sturdy and secure, Thunderbolt interface
Cons no comments
Summary After multiple recommendations we decided to get 2 of the 6TB units and connect them together with a thunderbolt cable in our office. I must admit, I've been pleasantly surprised by the complete lack of noise coming from them. The speeds are amazing, true, but the sheer silence is the truly amazing feature of these units.
Pros high capacity, sturdy and secure, great write & read speed
Cons annoying blue LED
Summary I do a lot of video editing in my work and must admit I was dubious when I was told that I would be able to stream multiple files from this one external device. I'll say it, I was wrong. This unit is more than able to keep up with the demands that I throw at it, now I'm really out of excuses for not getting my work done.
"Great Item!"on by Rian B.
Pros simple to use, great transfer speed, plenty of disk space, great design
Cons a bit heavy
Summary 6TB is a huge amount of storage space. I was looking for a good drive, capacious and fast, that I could use for storing raw data and processed files at the same time. The 2big is everything I needed. It works smoothly and quickly, the 7200 HDDs are high quality and work great. It's not a portable unit, a bit on the heavy side, but then I don't really need to cart it around..
"Great Product"on by BrendanKeyes
Pros excellent design, user friendly, good RAID performance, Thunderbolt interface
Cons haven't had any issues
Summary I run a video editing studio, have been using LaCie drives for years - for backup and storage. Bought a couple of these drives for current projects, to make the most of Thunderbolt transfer speeds. Both units work as advertised - very fast. I'd recommend this product to anyone.
Pros Aluminum casing, dual Thunderbolt ports, excellent speeds
Summary I particularly like the dual ports on this unit, it can be plugged into compatible devices. Thunderbolt is very fast, but the dual channel makes it even better as the unit can read and write simultaneously. The casing is attractive and I particularly like the fact that it's made of aluminum.
