Thunderbolt duo green speed


I bought a Thunderbolt duo in 2012 and it has perfomed fairly well so far running RAID 1 as my iPhoto library. However, if I run a speed test I generally get Read/Write results in the 85/95MB/s range. Other people tend to report around 120MB/s range for this product. I checked my drives and they are definitely WD Green 2 TB drives intellipower but 5400rpm versions. 

Question: Is it fair to say that the newer versions sold today of the Thunderbolt duo comes withe the faster intellipower capable of 5400-7200 to achieve the above +40MB/s results running RAID 1?


Maybe you should try contacting WD’s Technical Support about this. You can do so either by phone or email.

You think something is wrong with the drives per the poor performance?
