    About Thunderbolt

    Thunderbolt is a revolutionary I/O technology that supports high-resolution displays and high-performance data devices via one simple port and a cable that carries both DisplayPort and PCI Express data. And it’s standard on every Mac.

    PCI Express is the technology that links all the high-performance components in a Mac. And it’s built into Thunderbolt, which means you can get PCI Express speed outside the box.

    Thunderbolt gives you up to 10 Gbps in both directions, allowing for super-fast data transfer between peripherals. You also have enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed devices without using a hub or switch.

    Thunderbolt also provides double the power of USB 3.0, delivering 10 watts to peripherals for improved performance on the go.

    Nice to look at - but still, it's only a HD.

    Thunderbolt Cable is not included - even at this price.

    Remember this Hard Drive is 2 Partitions - so you can't use it as fx. 1 x 1GB + 1 x 3Gb. It can only be used as 2 x 2GB or you can split one of them into smaller partitions.

    Based on previous experience, I have tried everything I can (short of pulling the cable) to get the drive to disconnect while in use, so far (I happy to say) I have failed.

    I'm very happy with it, expensive but well worth the money if you need/want fast storage, next step is to use it as the boot drive for an iMac...
