Nice that it has USB3 and Thunderbolt.
Just Thunderbolt was a real limitation for people wanting to have Thunderbolt but still had to connect to PCs and older Macs.

I would be forced to use USB 3.0 at this point by using dual DVI-based displays with my Mac mini. I see no other practical way around of using Thunderbolt. I mean, short of buying a Thunderbolt display or LaCie's $200 eSATA Thunderbolt hub for daisy-chaining.

Yah, no TB pass through on this drive. I didn't notice that.

I no longer use dual displays with my Mac mini, but that's why you are probably better off with the Little Big Disk. I bought one of the refurbs from MacMall and it's been rock steady.
