Is this a Thunderbolt drive?

Will this work by connecting the thunderbolt port in the back to the thunderbolt port on a mac without using eSATA?

    No, this device is only a hub that allows connecting up to two eSATA drives to the device which are then connected to a Thunderbolt equipped computer over Thunderbolt. It does not have any built-in storage.

  • That's the whole purpose. From Apples web site -

    "With the LaCie eSATA Hub Thunderbolt Series you can now connect eSATA drives to your Thunderbolt-compatible Mac. Simply attach up to two drives to the Hub, which then connects to the Thunderbolt port on your Mac."

    The second Thunderbolt connection allows you to daisy chain a second thunderbolt device.
