I've spent the last week trying to put together a portable SSD Thunderbolt drive with very limited success. I started with the Seagate GoFlex portable adapter and used the following drives. Later I purchased a Buffalo Ministation and tried a couple of the drives through the Buffalo. I hooked up the drives directly to my MBA as well as through a GoFlex adapter (Direct and Daisychanined). OCZ Verte 3 (120GB) - Used on Seagate Adapters. Drive appeared to work in all configurations, however, the drive was slow (~195 MB/s read and write.) I say it was slow only because I'm seeing over 200MB/s from my Seagate Goflex desktop drive. I did not have the drive available when I purchased the buffalo enclosure. Crucial M4 (256GB) - Nothing but problems. The drive kept disconnecting in most configurations and a call to Crucial did not help. When I was able to get a reading the speed was approximately 230 write, 350 read, however it was too unreliable to use. OCZ Vertex 4 (256) - This drive is fasted 360MB/s in read and write, however, it appears very unstable and I constantly get disconnect messages when its connected directly to my MBA. When I connect through a daisy chain then it seems to work. It seems like a nice drive but not stable enough to rely on. Also, when using the Buffalo, the Vertex 4 did not get recognized when using the USB port. Intel 520 (180GB) - This has been the most stable drive has not disconnected in any configuration. Speeds are 235 MB/s write and 360 MB/S read. The drive also works when using the Buffalo enclosure in USB mode. I hope others find this information useful. I've decided to use the Buffalo thunderbolt enclosure and would be interested in hearing from anyone else who has had success in using SSD with this or the Seagate.
