Recent reviews:

POSITIVE:1. The drives works very fast in RAID 0 (Striped) configuration. As indicated by my Blackmagic it is over double the speed of my WD My Passport super (USB3 connection on a MacBookPro). 2. The fan does not come on frequently. 3. Price per GB is excellent in comparison to Sold State DrivesNEGATIVE:1. The fan in the unit is very deafening. It sounds like cheap hairdryer. Deafening enough for people in a coffee shop to start looking around to find the supply of the sound. 2. The fan looks to come on for no reason whatsoever. (i. E. No file transfers occurring and it starts.. Not quite sure why)3. The disk has failed after 3 days.. Running the “Disk Utility” from my Mac I see that disk 2 has “failed”. Generally back up your data.. I have not lost anything but I could be mad if I had. I’ll be to get a substitute. Hopefully it will not have the same issue, however looking online there seem to be some number of people who have experienced a failure of one of the disks. CONCLUSION:continue with caution.. NOTE: 10-Sep-2014I posted a near same review on the Apple Store web site.. That review and some number of other negative reviews now seem to be deleted. I asked written to Apple and they haven’t replied. You may be able to draw your conclusion on the Apple Store’s actions as I’ll only state fact as any more comment could possibly be construed as libel.

This drive has great build quality, compact design, and seamless operation. While the niche Western Digital is trying to hit can be small — users that want either RAID 1 (mirroring) or RAID 0 (striping) it succeeds in satisfying that niche with aplomb. I’m especially impressed by the build quality of the case — it’s aluminum on all sides with a plastic top and has the heft and sturdiness of a desktop drive. This is considerably more hefty than the Seagate Backup Fast drive. The only downside is the Thunderbolt cable isn’t removable, as I can see that being the failure point in the drive.

The WD My Passport Pro 2TB is really a well built part of kit. It is quite heavy, although. The 2TB model weighs in on my scale at a hair over 1lb. Out of the box, plugged into my 2012 iMac (running Mavericks), the drive was picked up instantly, running by default in RAID 0 configuration (HFS, journaled). This is the least safe technique of data preservation, however surely the fastest available for this device. Much like the Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo for desktops, this device is using software for its RAID. There are positives and negatives for hardware andsoftware RAID implementations, and I will not delve into this too much here. Apple’s basic RAID software included in OS X is not exactly stellar, although. (I favor using SoftRAID, which – while costly – is just a smart part of software for OS X). A couple of minor issues:1. ) If you break the Thunderbolt cable, the whole device is useless, as the cable is integrated. Be cautious to tuck the cable away into its holder when you are done. 2. ) there is a small fan in this enclosure, and I hope it is a long-lasting one, as – again – I do not see how you could replace it. 3. ) If you run a RAID 1 mirror array, if one drive fails you can not simply replace it as you may be able to on the Western Digital dual-drive desktop 3. 5″ RAID enclosures. You will have to copy the data off, send the drive in,, then wait for a substitute. Not exactly ideal.. I tried to see if I could open it up, however removing the four available screws – the enclosure did not want to come separately. 4. ) it is not a cheap setup. Particularly since it is not using a hardware RAID implementation, I am surprised it costs so much. 5. ) there is a small fan in this unit.
