Thanks for your input, yea I'm thinking the same. I don't really want to spend money on old technology aye. My Seagate hard drive comes with USB 2.0 and FireWire 800 adapter. So I might just use the USB 2.0 for now I wish it's USB 3.0! Damn it.Actual TB drive. Firewire, as an interface, is on the way out. I wouldn't want to invest in new kit for it - though if I had old FW drives I'd definitely get the adapter.
Fair enough! The ThunderBolt hard drive is expensive as hell at the moment aye. It's definitely for rich peopleI'd buy the adapter myself because I just bought a USB/FireWire drive about 7 months ago. The FireWire connection is much faster than USB which is why I try to use it instead of USB. I would get a thunderbolt drive but they are a lot more expensive than FireWire ones. I'll wait for prices to come down first.
I ordered one about an hour ago. No problems.They pulled it per Cult of Mac. WTF, over? I need one of those adapters.
Legit!I ordered one about an hour ago. No problems.
Here's the link I used. Looks like it's still working...
UPDATE: I went over to the Apple store and the Thunderbolt/FireWire adapter is listed. Store-->Mac Accessories-->Cables. It's way down at the bottom, second row from the last.
Agreed. If you have important files and no other way to access them, get it and migrate them to your desktop or a USB external. Then house them on a TB external if and when you purchase it.Actual TB drive. Firewire, as an interface, is on the way out. I wouldn't want to invest in new kit for it - though if I had old FW drives I'd definitely get the adapter.
