Bruno, Farnborough Video editor

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
With 6tb of capacity it has a lot of space for huge files when editing video. The thunderbolt makes it super fast, and it has 2 so you can daisy chain other one or still have a monitor. At £50 per TB with a thunderbolt it was a good deal.
Bad points:
It's shell is nada of plastic but not really a problem if stays in your desk all the time. Could have done with 3 conections.
