Excellent Fast Drive, 2014-05-08
By The Rainbow Warrior 
This Rugged unit challenges the old saw about how external drives are always going to be slower than the drive inside your laptop. Using my drive with my MacBook these days feels like I got a whole new and upgraded computer! I also love the USB 3.0 in addition to the Thunderbolt interface.
