Just be aware that the Thunderbolt or USB layer speed doesn't matter if you're only using 1-2 spindles (drives) since each drive will be the bottleneck. You won't see a real boost in performance unless you are using 5 or more disks or SSD units. Yes, 3 drives will get you close to 400MB/sec, but that's still low in comparison to modern media needs.

We always recommend that you try to get a Black Magic Disk Speed Test or an AJA System Performance test report for your particular system and drive configuration to see if you'll be satisfied with the item.
