Attached to a 2011 iMac, which has Thunderbolt 1 and USB 2 interfaces. I'm using this device with the iMac's Thunderbolt interface. I installed a single WD 3TB hard disk inside, and set the device to treat disks inside as "independent" (other options are RAID 0, RAID 1 and "span"). I intend to add a second disk later, but only need one right now. I may reconfigure to RAID 0 for performance if I add a second disk at a later time.

Using the Blackmagic disk speed test app (find it on the Mac App Store), I'm getting right around 150 MB/s read and write speeds. My previous external storage was a WD Elements 2TB drive connected using USB2. I can get about 30 MB/s speeds on that disk. So: 5x speed improvement. Very nice upgrade. Put a SSD or two in this thing and watch it really take off.

Kudos to OWC for including Thunderbolt and USB3 cables in the box.

Disk operation and device fan are audible. Not an issue in the environment I'm using this... Read more
This guy works great. I installed 2 SSD's with it - the lower drive cannot be screwed in, but it rests firmly with the power and data connectors plugged in. The upper drive needs a bit of a stretch for the two connectors but does not bend or fold the connectors. It all works great. No power issues, data is incredibly super fast. Really happy with this setup on my iMac 2012 with Thunderbolt connected. Very sturdy case.

Two things I learned with it using it as two independent hard drives: lower drive is the bootable drive, you cannot boot from the upper.
The SSD's will work fine but without an adapter. For the top drive, I used 1 screw to make sure the SSD wouldn't move, with the tension of that screw and the power / data wires, it works great!!

Not a bad solution, Thunderbolt enclosures are still hard to come by - this is a great choice.
Works well and compatible with USB3 on the newer Mac's running Yosemite. Thunderbolt connection is very fast.
