The LightPeak technology that provides the underpinnings of Thunderbolt is amazing. Thunderbolt isn't widely adopted and it's expensive, but there's no chance anyone would deny it's very, very fast. It's faster than USB 3.0 or Firewire 800.
The R6 supports multiple RAID configurations. It comes RAID 5 right out of the box and ready to connect to your Mac. There are a few things you should know right off the bat. The drive doesn't come with a cable. At this price, that's almost criminal. So have a Thunderbolt cable ready if you want to use the R6 on arrival. The next thing you should know is that it takes about 10 hours for the drive to self-configure once you plug it in. After the lights stop flashing, the unit will show up on your Mac like any other drive.
I bought my Pegasus with 12TB of storage - two of that reserved for data redundancy. The unit houses six, two-TB 3.5-inch hard drives. They spin at 7200 RPM and are fast enough for video, audio, you name it. The R6 has that brushed aluminum Mac look that most Mac peripherals use and it's quite handsome - not that it matters. The footprint is similar to other drive bays on the market which hold 12TB of data.
As a photographer, my main concern with one of these drives is that they are safe and fast. While I've only had a week to test the R6 so far, I feel like it's both. There's absolutely no denying the fact it's fast. How fast? REAL fast.Read more ›
Before I could do software updates though, I needed for iMac to recognize the drive - it did not work out of the box. Call to tech support helped - the issue was cable connection on iMac side. Phone tech support person was knowledgeable, but surely rushed. If you ran into this problem, try a different cable or reverse cable's direction. Make sure dim thunderbolt light (below blue power light on the front panel) is on.
Within a week, one of six drives has failed. This is consistent with the experience of other reviewers on Apple's site. Advanced replacement was shipped a day later than expected. It has been a week since I got the drive and I am still not able for the enclosure to completely accept the new drive and clear red error lights on the dashboard. On-line support is slow, answers at odd hours, and does not seem to be looking at screen shots, logs and the submitted messages. Quite frustrating actually.
Monitoring software is less than intuitive and crashes all the time, although drive is still mounted and can be used. Once Promise software stops working,, I have to hard reboot iMac.
Performance is good. I need two more Thunderbolt RAIDs, but will wait until there are more stable products on the market.
