    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.

  • LaCie 2TB Rugged Thunderbolt keeps ejecting

I thought I might have gotten a bad one at first and swapped it out, but this one is constantly ejecting while working in Premier. I'm using a 17-inch MacBookPro and I really wanted it for the speed and the 2TB, but I can't make it work. It's going back and I should have stayed with G-Drives. My 750G goes everywhere with me in my laptop bag for years.

    This is my first LaCie, but I have had at least half a dozen similar hard drives (of various sizes and makes) in my possession. Co This is my first LaCie, but I have had at least half a dozen similar hard drives (of various sizes and makes) in my possession. Compared to the others, I think this drive works really well on my 2010 MacBook Pro. In fact I was going to write a good review when I realized that others have had bad experiences with the drive. I find that this drive

    1. Is fast (does not take forever to mount);
    2. Stays cool--maybe I am lucky with this one, this one does not get hot. Yes, it does warm up. I suppose if this was my first drive, I might worry too. But compared to my other drives (which can get hot to the touch and make noises), this drive seems to remain incredibly cool to me.
    3. Is nicely "cushioned". I have never had a drive that has "bumpers", but I really like the fact that this drive makes no noise because of the soft orange bumpers.

    However, I do not use the software that comes with the drive--deleted it all, though I have kept the partition. AND: I don't use the Thunderbolt connection (have none on my MacBook Pro), but use the USB 2.0 exclusively. Either of the two may make a difference.

    I didn't realize that the Thunderbolt cable was permanently attached to the casing (an obvious divergence from best practice). Hig I didn't realize that the Thunderbolt cable was permanently attached to the casing (an obvious divergence from best practice). High-end electrical devices have had detachable cables for years, for the reason being that abuse on cables can be brutal and the ability to replace them easily increase the longevity and reliability of the device. Sad to say this cable didn't even perform out of the box. I'm a Lacie fan, unfortunately this is one of their blunders. I'll be returning it for one with a detachable cable (which they still make, just aren't sold here in the apple store).
