The CalDigit T3 Thunderbolt 2 is certainly a unique storage solution. It's not often we see a solution sporting three bays over the traditional two, but with that comes additional flexibility when it comes to your storage.
The T3 Thunderbolt 2 carries on the same build quality we have come to expect from CalDigit and the few products we have seen from them, the entire enclosure of the T3 is a single piece design and aluminum at that.
Performance was quite good with the HDD and SSD based solutions. Our 9TB RAID 0 array was able to reach nearly 580 MB/s read and write, while in RAID 1 the T3 came in at a respectable 375 MB/s read and 200 MB/s write.
Installing the SSD modules performance picked up quite a bit with our RAID 0 array topping 1100 MB/s read and 1000 MB/s write, while the RAID 1 setup again topped 1100 MB/s read and 400 MB/s write.
