    Finally a thunderbolt enclosure that you can put your own HDD or SSD into. It was announced in April so hopefully will be available soon. This could be a good alternative to taking your iMac apart to put in your own SSD.

    I really like the dual drive T2.

    That single drive setup looks particularly nice with the removable drive. Do you have any pricing info?

    Since it's Caldigit it won't be cheap, but at least it will be decent stuff. Their USB 3 devices are not exactly cheap.

    Yeah but their quality and performance is top notch. I can also attest to their customer service, excellent. I actually never heard of them and someone on these forums turned me on to them.

    I bought the AV drive and love it, but I'll be giving it to my brother when this is released.

    Definitely would recommend over LaCie or G-Drive.

    Indeed. If it was available, I would get the two drive unit, but I need one immediately for off-site video work so I am getting a Lacie 2Big this week. I already have a Pegasus at my office, but the Olympics mean that I will not be setting foot in London for the next 2.5 weeks.

    I asked, from the email reply:
    "Pricing will range from approximately $400-$900, with the 2TB HDD variant being the least expensive, to the 480GB SSD variant at the upper end."

    I remember seeing this early this year. I still don't see anywhere that stocks it though.

    No, not really, they keep pushing the date back. Now they are saying Q1 2013.

    I want this pretty badly and was disappointed after September came and went.
