Summary: Out of the box, this is a pretty easy unit to work with. After reading up on various RAID configurations, I decided to reconfigure the unit to RAID5+ spare mode. I haven't had any problems thus far, the speed is good, there's almost no noise, the drive is made of solid aluminum, and looks great.
Summary: We use several of these units at our office, all daisy chained and linked together. Our editing software and projects require a phenomenal amount of storage space. These units are very reliable, the software that comes with it is excellent and easy to use. The best thing for us is that these units run very cool and quiet - a massive bonus in a small office!
Summary: It's great. It's expensive, but this is what I bought it for- it does what its intended to do and streams fine from it in USB 3.0
Pros: Holds more than enough at RAID 5 (the 12 TB model = 8.80GB or close to that). Pretty easy setup, no issues few weeks in. It's backing up my home media collection.
Cons: Nothing major I can report on.. its heavy, so just concerned for the glass desktop it sits on. Light on the front, a la HAL, comes on from time to time, but its not major. Have the drives in sleep after 10 mins.. so maybe something is pinging it.
Summary: I created a full system backup of a Mac I've kept around to serve as a test machine and was very gratified to see that I could boot that machine using that backup. As you would expect, the unit works sweet with Intego Backup Manager Pro, too, and the USB 3.0 interface makes things go much more quickly than before. Count me a fan!
