    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.

      Worked great for a year

I This hard drive is super portable and easy to mount, and it worked great for almost a year, but now it randomly force ejects itself, risking damage to files. I had an older version of the same product that did the same thing. I don't think I'll be buying LaCie brand again unfortunately. If that one bug could be fixed, this product would be perfect.

      USB Connection to MacBook Pro drops

      Stunning. I bought this unit to maintain my Photos libraries, but it randomly looses its connection which then crashes Photos. Unworkable.

      Quick, Simple, and Reliable

      I have had three of these hard drives. I purchased my first one in 2012 and have since purchased others. I use them daily. One of them is a dedicated back up I have had three of these hard drives. I purchased my first one in 2012 and have since purchased others. I use them daily. One of them is a dedicated back up for my iMac and the other two are used in my daily workflow and travel with me. They have worked reliably with the abuse of air travel and through the mail. I take them with me abroad and in the field. I use them to hold backups of my photography work and to share work with clients. In my use and experience with these hard drives, they have proved to be very reliable. I like the ease and speed of using the thunderbolt connection, but like having the USB 3.0 as another option when needed. I have not experienced any of the issues that other people are having. I highly recommend this product.

      Really bad external hard drive

      I bought this hard drive several months ago to get something reliable and solid as I already have a couple of external hard drive. The first one I bought had I bought this hard drive several months ago to get something reliable and solid as I already have a couple of external hard drive. The first one I bought had a problem, it was awfully slow and bugged most of the time. I sent it back. The second one is ok. Just ok. Seriously it's slower than my older hard drive, it disconnects as soon as I move an inch and it's doing these really weird sounds. It's ok. But I am not so happy about it.

      Built like a tank, but lacks performance

      Summary: Built very rugged, but Thunderbolt was slower than USB3 in both on my iMac 27" i7 and my MacBook 11" i7. Tried with both the fitted 1TB Samsung HDD and Summary: Built very rugged, but Thunderbolt was slower than USB3 in both on my iMac 27" i7 and my MacBook 11" i7. Tried with both the fitted 1TB Samsung HDD and two different SSDs. My inexpensive USB3 encloser costing 10% outperformed this unit. If you really, really want the rugged packaging and don't care about the price then I recommend the USB3 without Thunderbolt, version. In addition this doesn't have a 2nd TB connector, so you cannot daisy chain an external monitor. I would not recommend this unit.
