    Works great, but no longer diskless

    • Written by David P 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!!

    Very good, but not perfect

    The build quality is excellent, as it should be at this price for desktop storage.

    Performance is very good - over 500MB/s stained on sequential workloads, and reasonable performance on random I/O too. To be fair the random I/O is never going to be a match for SSD with SATA HDD's, but if you want to the drives can be replaced with SSD's.

    My only real gripe with this unit is the noise. It's not terrible in a way that Drobo's are sometimes, but it's definitely noticeable. On my desk I also have a Synology NAS located approximately the same distance away on the other side of the desk. I can't barely hear this, even in a very quiet room (late on a night with the clock ticking in the background). I guess I'll just have to buy a longer cable and move the Pegasus further away from me.
