Yes we can use the thunderbolt adapter to plug in a ssd.
We have two solutions.
1. Fixed drives that are plug and play directly to thunderbolt.
Plus: no effort, fast, ready to use raid solutions.
Minus: Expensive, some devices are making noise.
LaCie Little Big Disk (2T non ssd or 512GB SATAIII SSD)
$202.99 - 120 GB (amazon) (no extra thunderbolt, so no chain or second display available)
But after the above i show that
So seems that the solutions is the GoFlex with another ssd disk. But be aware! works fine with 128GB ssds BUT NOT with 240GB and above. Seems that needs the proper case, based on power problems.
So if you want also to use your extra thunderbolt for display then you need to buy that
Seagate GoFlex Desk Thunderbolt Adapter (STAE122) at 169.99 $
here you can see a demonstration with the official boxed seagate disks
Chineses are the perfect testers! That the proof that all works. It's reinstall also the os X mountain lion on ssd256 samsung.
Some notes about Windows 7 installation ssd here (seems to be caution with bios settings for better performance)
What's going on? A short Google session shows that everyone has problems with portable TB adapter from Seagate when used with SSD bigger then 240GB. for example
So we need a ssd with the lower - lowest power consumption and good stats..
