The drive I have is the Seagate GoFlex. That works with the caddies they sell and any esata 2.5" HDD.

Do you mean SATA? I've never seen an HDD with anything but an SATA or SAS connection, normally eSATA is only used on external HDD cases which have SATA HDD's inside them.

Not to sure why sad is needed. SSD drives are still quite expensive.

You could look at this.

Hi,

I've been looking around and can't seem to find anything. Here is what I'm looking for.

External hard drive
Thunderbolt
BUS powered
SSD
Preferably daisy chainable
Not an arm and a leg

This has led me to looking for an external hard drive enclosure, with which I can pop in my own drives. But it seems like because of something Thunderbolt related that they don't exist.

The only thing I've found is a 500gb Lacie Rugged, which is $100 more than TWO 1tb traditional hard drives.

There's got to be something out there I can DIY to get fast and safe backups while on the road.

Any thoughts?

PS, let's not talk about having extra memory cards, etc. It's not a good solution for me.

Thanks!

Lyle

A bare SSD around 500GB is going for about $300. And TB enclosures sell for a premium (justified or not) so be prepared to pay another $200 for that.

I'm not sure if you've seen this one...

If you're not prepared to pay the premium for TB, there's always USB3 at a more affordable price point...

In short, no. Thunderbolt is still new

Hmm. February 2011 is new?

and pricey so there isn't a lot out there atm, at what there is is generally pretty expensive.

As compared to technologies like eSATA and USB that have been around for a lot longer, and hence have a much larger product base, yes.

I haven't seen a bare TB enclosure that is bus powered...have you seen one around?

Thanks for the input everyone, I was able to figure out how to get a TB card reader going, but it seems like this just isn't there yet. Guess I'll stick with USB 3.0 for now!

Thanks!

Lyle

The Seagate GoFlex is Thunderbolt, bus powered and I have a 256GB SSD and a 1TB Normal Disk caddy. I think this fits your requirements. One dock, you can have multiple HHD's of any spec. Very cheap, mature product, good support and CHEAP price!

You can either add a standard internal 2.5 HDD of any kind or buy the caddies which I think go up to 3TB now having had a look although the one I have is 1TB.

This is the updated version:

If you want some serious storage and can find a power supply this is not a bad option although the tx speeds are not as good as quoted:

Hi, just found this product. Ebay is blocked where I am, is it the same product as above? Good solution, would be perfect if it offered drive protection but it'll work for me.

Pick up any bare SSD on sale or whatnot and throw it on here: http://www.amazon.com …HQCARY/ref=sr_1​_1?ie=UTF8 (external link)
