My Book VelociRaptor Duo

Extreme speed, high capacity storage - Built with two 10,000 RPM WD VelociRaptor drives inside, My Book VelociRaptor Duo delivers extreme speed and high capacity for high-end video and photo editing, 3D rendering, graphic-intensive design and more.

Move data at unprecedented speeds - The revolutionary Thunderbolt connector provides two channels of up to 10Gb/s transfer rate in both directions. This allows data to travel both ways without compromising bandwidth. This means video files are imported faster, visual effects are rendered in record time and you can power through your projects.

User-configurable RAID for speed or double-safe data protection - You can select the RAID mode that's right for you. Choose RAID 0 (striping) for the performance you need when designing or editing graphic-intensive media files. When the drive is set to RAID 1 (mirroring) it provides double-safe data protection by automatically generating a duplicate copy of your data. Set the drive to JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) to use as two individual drives and select between HFS+J or ExFAT per disk. Ideal for running Windows OS on a Mac.

Daisy chain more drives for more speed - The dual Thunderbolt ports allow you to daisy chain more drives for more speed and higher capacity. Connect a Thunderbolt display and other Thunderbolt-enabled peripherals to achieve maximum efficiency and productivity.

High-speed multi-tasking - The revolutionary bi-directional Thunderbolt technology delivers unmatched speed for multi-tasking while video editing, 3D rendering and completing other graphics-intensive projects.

User-serviceable - Want to replace a drive? Simply open the case and exchange the existing drive. If you fill up a drive, you can simply remove it and replace it with a fresh drive and begin saving even more of your creative life.

Lightning-fast boot drive - My Book VelociRaptor Duo can be used as a lightning-fast system boot drive. So while others are still starting up their system, you are already working on your creative masterpiece.

WD Drive Utilities - Register your drive, run diagnostics, manage RAID or JBOD modes and more using WD Drive Utilities.

Review submitted for Western Digital My Book VelociRaptor Duo 2TB (WDBUWZ0020JBK)
Pros: Very fast, VERY SATISFIED
Cons: None so far
Other Comments: iMac System and New Hard Drives This is information upon investing in new hardware, My Book VelociRaptor Duo w/ Thunderbolt and Drobo 5D w/Thunderbolt. I normally do not do reviews but I am very happy in what I have (time will tell). Mac System: iMac, 27-inch, Mid 2011, 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7, AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1024 MB, OS X 10.8.3 Hard Drive Hardware: iMac: Seagate Barracuda 3.5 Inch Internal Hard Drive, Seagate, ST31000528AS, 7200, 1 TB, 32 MB Cache, SATA 3Gb/s, 2-yr warranty External Drives: My Book VelociRaptor: My Book VelociRaptor Duo Thunderbolt, 2 Western Digital WD1000DHTZ VelociRaptor, 1TB 10000RPM, 64MB SATA, 6.0Gb/S 3.5, 2.5 inch within a frame that acts like a heatsink, 3-yr warranty. Amazon has the same drives w/ a 5-yr warranty. Go figure?? I have this set up as Just a Bunch of Disks mode (JBOD). Drobo 5D Thunderbolt: 5 - Western Digital Caviar Black, 2 TB, SATA III, 7200, 64 MB Cache, 5-yr warranty, WD2002FAEX SSD - Crucial mSATA 128 GB, M4-CT128M4SSD3 This is set up with Single Redundancy. DroboPro: 8 - 2 TB hard drives, 4 Seagate and 4 WD (switching over to WD2002FAEX when drives fail This is set up with Dual Redundancy Objective: Use My Book VelociRaptor configured as JBOD to boot system from VelociRaptor - A and use Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) to keep an up-to-date clone onto VelociRaptor - B. Initial set-up time: CCC boot copy to iMac HD to VelociRaptor - A time: 4:20:02 for 514 GB (29.24 mb/sec) CCC boot copy of VelociRaptor - A to VelociRaptor - B time: 1:41:34 for 513.66 GB (86.80 mb/sec) A Quick Disk Speed Test w/ Blackmagicdesign (1 gig data) in mb/sec: Drive(s) Write Read VelociRaptor (boot) (new) 160.3 160.0 iMac HD (old boot) 91.0 105.9 Drobo 5D (new) 223.4 249.1 DroboPro (old)(Dual redundency) 31.5 46.9 Software Used: Carbon Copy Cloner (CCC) does the drive cloning to VelociRaptor Drive - B set to back up once/day. ChronoSync does all other backups. Remarks: As can be seen the Drobo 5D is the fastest w/ the SSD but it can't be used as a boot drive so this is where the MY Book VelociRaptor enters the scene doing the booting now and is very fast. The new Drobo 5D is for my iTunes, photo, and video, and misc. It works very well with the Apple TV. The old DroboPro set up with Dual Redundancy was for my iTunes but now is used for all backups. I am very happy with my new set-up. My iMac boots extremely fast with the My Book VelociRaptor Duo and the Drobo 5D is like "hyperspace." Maybe Apple can offer 1 TB VelociRaptor w/ SSD. That would scream. During the many years of my computing from Ataris to Windows and now Macs (love my Apple products) I am a firm believer in having backups. One personal opinion is you get what you pay for in hardware and hard drives. I have had hard drives w/ 1-year warranties and have had them fail right after the warranty is up. That's why I have switched to 5-yr warranties. It depends on price and reliability. The longer one uses computers the more MBs, GBs, and now TBs one needs, especially with Backups.
