Cool looking, but a powerful device
It’s aluminum shells is pretty cool looking and holds either 4TB or 6TB worth of storages. Thus it will be a very good choice for creative professional for photos or videos, or even home users who just wish to have a quick drive with huge storage. It is heat-sink cooled and also in addition, a thermo-regulated fan which will turn off and on depending on the temperature of the drives.
Overall it is a very cool and fast drive for any Mac owners, but they don’t come cheap. 4TB will cost you USD$650 and 6TB will run up to $800.
