This drive is fabulous, not the least because it makes use of my Thunderbolt ports, which is incredibly handy since I only have two USB ports. Though it's a Thunderbolt interface, the actual drive speed is definitely not 10GB/s. On my mid-2012 Macbook Pro (i7 processor with 16GB RAM) it tops out at about 100MB/s but averages around 80MB/s for read and write speeds. Still an awesome drive though. Love that the thunderbolt cable is hardwired in.
