    I picked up the 4TB Thunderbolt drive at my local Apple Store for less than list price (!!!). It is a very solid, well designed, I picked up the 4TB Thunderbolt drive at my local Apple Store for less than list price (!!!). It is a very solid, well designed, solid aluminum enclosure that compliments any Apple setup (mine is a Mac Mini). It is whisper quiet without a fan and virtually zero disc noise. It gets only slightly warm after extended use.

    Set up could not have been easier. Plug it in (Thunderbolt or USB 3.0) and Apple Time Machine launches automatically. One or two clicks and off it goes. The first backup (my principal use) took about 2 hours (1TB+ of data with Thunderbolt) and the back-up files were easy to find and access.

    I am pleased with the data transfer rate (165 MB/sec) and the integration into the Apple ecosystem is excellent. A good solid piece of kit. If you are a user and holder of big media files and projects, this is an very good choice particularly with Thunderbolt connectivity. The 3-year warranty also gives me some piece of mind as well.
