Best price and quick shipping... what else could you want!
So far, so good. I set up for Raid 1 for the back up feature so of course you will not get max performance - RAID 0. But it was still plenty fast=36,000 images were transferred. I bought because 2 of my 2 TB Seagate decided to stop working within 5 days of each other. I have 4 desktop versions and 2 portable versions. I was disappointed and surprised because I never really had any issue in the last 7 years. These 2 that went bad were less than 2 years old-unacceptable!! This G-Tech, is not silent but certainly is not distractingly annoying-to me. Excellent quality build, fast and dependable-so far. That is what I wanted and received!
I bought this to use with my iMac (2011) for video storage and editing. Setup was a breeze; it was all ready to go and works as advertised. Several months ago I had purchased a thunderbolt cable, so it was on hand. Not coming with the thunderbolt cable does add to the cost of purchasing the product. All of my other thunderbolt accessories came with the cable. I really haven't put it through its paces yet, so I can't attest to the speed.
