The Western Digital My Book Thunderbolt Duo brings surprisingly quick speeds to Thunderbolt-capable systems and those who need a combination of big capacity and fast throughput in a local external hard drive solution.

Altogether, a good high-capacity external drive for Mac users, with the advantages of simplicity and user-replaceable drives. We hope to see a Windows version for those very few Thunderbolt-equipped PCs in the near future.
