    I got the connector end of a GoFlex portable drive, I have a USB3 and FW800 packed into my kit making unloading to any machine simple.

    I've heard some using the GoFlex Thunderbolt portable drive adapter and having success with it (but I'd get confirmation from someone first that it's working well). Would make the transfers REALLY fast.

    I have the GoFlex and it doesn't work with my Sandisk 480GB on MBP. Seems okay with my 120GB Sandisk. Very annoying.

    No one has started an approved list or a list of drives that do and do not work.

    At least the Voyager specs look good claiming it works with SATA I, II, III, for hard drives or SSDs up to 4TB. That sounds fine even if the fastest interface is just USB3. Nice to have the options of FireWire and eSATA as a fallback.

    The frustration with the Seagate GoFlex Thunderbolt adapter is that they only claim it supports Seagate's GoFlex drives so I suppose that's why they never comment on it failing to support the Sandisk Extreme 480GB SSD even though it works with the 240GB Sandisk.

    yeah - I have the go flex as well - thought i had a dud because a sandisk 240gb worked no problem but not the 480 - returned and alas it just doesn't play nice with the 480.

    I have an older Voyager dock which I use with eSATA and a Seagate BackupPlus USB 3 (the GoFlex replacement). Both work well with my Kingston 240GB SSD.
