I wanted to "simplify" things by swapping both these external drives to thunderbolt and thought these should work.
I connected everything up as instructed, but the drives were not seen by the Mac. The STAE122 has now power indication LEDs, so I can't be sure they were getting power, but the adapters did feel warm. It could be bad thunderbolt cables, but I bought two seperate cables, and neither worked. Also, The drives could not be heard to spin up when connected to these adapters and power. The do when connected to the adapters that came with them.
The seller, BLINQ has been great and is taking the product back.
It's been fast and very reliable. I had to use a special driver (from Seagate, and included with the drive on a small usb disk) to make it compatible with the existing formatting on the disk (from formatting the disk with a firewire or USB dock). I would have used it with multiple computers, but because of this I end up just using it for one computer.
I'm also concerned that it'll be a bit of fuss to use it for a full system restore (I use the disk for time machine backups) if I have to do that at some point. Really then I should copy everything to another disk with SuperDuper and reformat it without the driver, but that's a bunch of work too.
I'm sure there's a good technical reason for it, but I'm subtracting one star because it wasn't advertised very well (it was a surprise to me when I got the disk at least).
