You can daisy-chain up to 6 My Book VelociRaptor Duo together using the Thunderbolt ports. The dual-drive storage system offers RAID 0 for performance or RAID 1 for protection
The good thing about these high speed harddisk is that they allow several high intensity task such as video editing and 3D rendering while doing other graphics intensive task. My Book VelociRaptor Duo has data transfer rates of up to 400 MB/s. This allows transferring a 22GB full-length HD movies in less than 65 seconds, 2000 5MB pictures in less than 33 seconds and over 500 5MB songs in less than 8 seconds.
With great performance comes a equally great price tag. The Western Digital My Book VelociRaptor Duo is currently retailing at S$1,299. But if you require such high performance, I’m sure it’s worth every penny.
