    For a 2x SSD Thunderbolt RAID drive? No, price seems about right.

    I think that "sounds right" is a bit extreme. Let's just say it's consistent with their overpricing on TB HDD's.

    This product is not for us apparently. You can't price 500GB at $1500 and expect high volume. There is no performance metric that would make that price sane. I don't care if it uses the entire thunderbolt channel to transfer at 10GB/second. No sane consumer will spend that money.

    Remember this is the Apple market we're talking about. Sanity doesn't usually factor into buying decisions.

    I'd like to think most people would look at the $1500, then look at a brand new Macbook Pro 13 with an upgraded HDD (to 500GB) and realize what a joke Lacie and Apple are pulling with this.

    ... but you are probably right.

    Newsflash. Apple does not dictate La Cies pricing.

    Cheaper TB drives will be out soon from Seagate and others.

    Why?

    My post been removed, why?

    =========================So anyone who has already purchased a Seagate GoFlex portable drive is set to upgrade to Thunderbolt as soon as the adapter is made available in order to unleash a reported 10Gbps speed! For those who unfortunately decided to go with another hard drive manufacturer, be prepared to fork over more money to replace your external storage entirely, on top of the hassle of migrating the data from your current drive to the one with the new interface.
