Are Thunderbolt enclosures for hard drives worth it? I'm looking at the LaCie 2big 8TB RAID enclosure and the rugged 500GB / 1TB external. The raid enclosure would be set in RAID 1 for mirror. I would back up my MacBook and my Window PC to it, along with storing all my files. When it comes to Thunderbolt, are you able to load games off of it? Say I wanted to use the 500GB and load 500GB of Steam games for my Windows partition, would they load fast enough? The drive itself would be limited to whatever speed the drive is, 5600 or 7200, but is the interface itself fast enough? I know loading over USB is slow.
