What a great looking product. The build quality on this is exceptional. The ability to use this across the Apple Mac Range as well as Windows machines is great to see. Super fast Thunderbolt connection and cracking USB 3.0 speeds. Very desirable product and if you’re in the need for speed it’s excellent


High price, but if you need the speed its worth it
