  Very nice Thunderbolt HD,  2012-11-24
By Tim

This drive came out of the box with both the USB and the Thunderbolt cables. I plugged the Thunderbolt cable into my MacBook Pro, wondering if I was going to have to format this thing, but no: my MacBook immediately recognized the drive and I simply started using it, no hassle or fuss at all.

When I first navigated to the drive there was one file in the root directory called Manual.pdf which described how to format it and other stuff, but since my MacBook was already reading the drive I didn't see the need to format it, so I just shrugged and started copying files to it.

I am no tech guru so I can't give you measured numbers, but the drive is MUCH faster than copying files using an old USB 2.0 drive I had been using. The Thunderbolt cable is pretty short, maybe a foot and a half long, but that was actually preferable for me since this is sitting next to my MacBook on my kitchen counter.

The hard drive case looks like Apple designed it: very attractive brushed aluminum and grey plastic that looks like brushed aluminum. It looks completely at home sitting next to the brushed aluminum case of my MacBook Pro. I have become accustomed to Apple's "less is more" design philosophy, and this drive looks great, compared to some black garish drive.

I am very happy with my purchase.
