    Works great, but no longer diskless

    • Written by from BEAVERCREEK

    This is a great enclosure so far (I have 2 enclosures with 4 arrays) but I was able to buy them diskless. My only complaint would be the thunderbolt cables included were way too short. Also, now they are no longer available in the Apple Store in the diskless form and the others are a total rip-off due to hyper-inflated drive prices. BRING THESE ENCLOSURES BACK DISKLESS, APPLE!!

    Great match with the new Mac Pro

    • Written by from Merritt Island

    It did a lot of research and soul searching before diving in with this device. It's a great match with a new Mac Pro. The Thunderbolt 2 interface between the two devices is seamless. The Pegasus is configured at the factory for RAID 5, which is what I intended, so I really didn't have to do any configuration on it, except change the default device name for my own purposes. It took about 4 hours to do the initial RAID 5 sync and the system is still available for use during that time. I delayed heavy data transfer from old devices until the sync finished because using the system slows down the syncing process. After plugging in, the Pegasus does need to be attached to the Mac via the Thunderbolt 2 cable (included with the Pegasus). The Pegasus doesn't really come alive until it's attached to the Mac. The configuration utility (downloadable) has gobs of configurables and readouts. Once running, it's very fast. I'm using it for video rendering and this device certainly is not a bottleneck. I'm a happy camper so far!
