Overview

Move data at unprecedented speeds

Finally, a drive that can keep up with your creativity. Video editors and other digital media professionals can do more work in less time with the ground-breaking data transfer speed of the Thunderbolt™ ports on My Book Thunderbolt Duo drive. It offers the indisputably fastest way to get information to and from your external drive.

High-capacity storage

My Book Thunderbolt Duo, dual-drive storage system featuring revolutionary Thunderbolt technology, sets new standards for data transfer speeds and workflow flexibility in an affordable, high-capacity storage system.

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 several drives together for even faster speed

The intelligent Thunderbolt connector provides two channels of up to 10Gb/s transfer rate in both directions. This means data can travel both ways without compromising bandwidth. Add to that the power of multiple drives processing data and you get amazing speed.

User-serviceable

Want to upgrade a drive? Simply open the case and replace the existing drive – no screwdriver needed.

High-speed multi-tasking

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

Thunderbolt Technology

Performance that keeps up with your creativity

Transfer a full-length HD movie in under 30 seconds or thousands of MP3 songs in mere minutes. Thunderbolt™ I/O technology gives you two channels on the same connector with 10 Gb/s of throughput in both directions. Data moves to and from drives up to 20 times faster than with USB 2.0 and up to 12 times faster than with FireWire 800, providing more than enough bandwidth to daisy-chain multiple high-speed drives without using a hub or switch.

One of the most advanced cables ever

Reduce clutter while increasing your productivity. Thunderbolt technology supports daisy chaining multiple devices through a single Thunderbolt connector so you can multi-task at maximum speed without the need for a hub or switch.

The bandwidth you need for maximum data throughput

Connect your Thunderbolt technology-enabled external hard drives, media players, HD displays, media capture and editing systems through a Thunderbolt chain while maintaining maximum throughput. Then enjoy nearly unlimited flexibility and performance in your creative life.
