    Hi All,

    I did quite a bit of reading and have been making some progress.

    I picked up the Akitio Neutrino Thunder Duo and installed two Samsung 840 Evo 500 GB SSDs. I am using software raid 0 and am getting what I consider to be impressive numbers.

    I had the disk about 1/3 full with files that I use regularly before I ran the first test. My Write speed was around 680-700 and my read speed was north of 780-790. I just thought I would share in case anyone else is looking for a small External drive.

    Of course, I have time capsule and other large external HDD for long term storage and redundancy.

    Yes, that is an impressive dual drive Thunderbolt enclosure. I have a pair of 256GB Samsung 840 Pro SSDs in RAID-0 mounted in mine and it flies with my Aperture Library on it!

    Enjoy your speedy drive... :) :cool:
