Back in February, we had our very first look at the CalDigit T3 Thunderbolt storage device. Now nine months later, CalDigit has upgraded the T3 to Thunderbolt 2, releasing both HDD and SSD based solutions.
The CalDigit T3 Thunderbolt 2 allows another level of flexible storage; where typical two bay solutions are limited to RAID 0 or 1, the T3 can utilize RAID 0 on two HDDs, while having a third bay for SSD storage. If you choose to go for full on performance, the T3 with a full complement of SSDs is capable of 1100 MB/s, where if you choose capacity over speed, you can utilize up to 15TB at 580 MB/s.
Let's dive in now and take a close look.
