    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.

      Works fine for me....

      I've been buying hard drives since the mid 80s and they all worked except for the ones that didn't. I've had Samsungs and LaCies die on me over the past couple I've been buying hard drives since the mid 80s and they all worked except for the ones that didn't. I've had Samsungs and LaCies die on me over the past couple of years. Buying hard drives is like doing the lottery. This G-Tech has been great - on all the time, silent when it isn't in overdrive which is rarely, and has so far been 100% reliable. Just about to buy another.
