    Thunderbolt drives - reviews after 6 months

    Hi all -- Just posting reviews on the now 8-month-old Promise Pegasus RAID drives for Macs using Thunderbolt. Some decent reviews, some not, but a good amount of them are written by editors, so I figured it appropriate for this forum. Seems like the 12TB version is the most buggy. The reviews get a little worse as the months go on. Mainly the individual drives within going bad. 

    Reviews of the 4TB  

    Reviews of the 6TB

    Reviews of the 8TB

    Reviews of the 12TB 

    The LaCie "Little Big Drives" seem to be doing fine review-wise (when they are reviewed by editors, not just some doof who walked into an Apple Store looking for a Time Machine drive).

    Re: Thunderbolt drives - reviews after 6 months

    We use the 12TB at our facilities in Paris, on an iMac to test it with 5.5.3.

    We have edited documentaries (52'), multicam 2h30 music concert with out any problem !

    Fast, not so noisy under the deck.

    We have only one panel that says "NO IPHONE HERE" : if you approach an iPhone from the disk, it will disconnect !

    That's the only bad thing, but now we know, so no more ejected drive at all.



    Paris, France.
