The Bottom Line The My Book VelociRaptor Duo is one of the best storage devices thanks to its balanced combination of excellent performance, practical design, and relatively friendly pricing. The WD My Book Thunderbolt Duo makes a very good external storage device for Thunderbolt-enabled Macs thanks to its comparative affordability, ease of use, and decent performance. The LaCie 2big Thunderbolt Series strikes a balance between capacity, performance, and price and would be a good choice for owners of Thunderbolt-enabled computers. Fast, flexible, rugged, and affordable, the LaCie Rugged Thunderbolt is one of the best high-end portable drives on the market.
