    It died.

    • Written by from Bellevue

    I purchased this with my mac pro desk top thinking that I would store all of my photography on this and just let my mac do the heavy lifting with the lightroom catalog and photoshop ad nauseam. But that software does me no good without the images which have disappeared conveniently, or not so much in my case, during my efforts to consolidate and make copies of several years worth of my images. This has not been a happy day. So beware, perhaps there are more dependable options out there. I am searching for them.

    Not Reliable.

    • Written by from Van Nuys

    The Chassis fails like clockwork, always the 4th drive bay. I've just replaced my 4th bay drive again for the 6th time since purchase and Pegasus would not exchange the unit while under warranty. I would not pawn this problem onto someone else by selling it when working, Just want to share my problem and let others know buyer beware.

    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!
