Performs well and looks good with a Mac

Michael W. Konrad, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: I needed to first use this to extract information from drives of a failed machine, so replaced installed drives with those from old Mac. Was able to retrieve information. Then reinstalled the original drives. Set up a mirror RAID for TimeMachine. The other 3 drives are free to store videos etc. Have used it for 14 days and am very satisfied.

Good value, quality product that's easy to set up

Richard G. Witham "DAV", Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this system to use with a 2013 model iMac. I set it up in less than 10 minutes including the time it took to format four of the included drives into two RAID 1 sets for storing files with mirrored back up and one RAID 0 drive for Time Machine back up of the iMac's HD. The housing's 7" x 8" footprint is larger than any HD tower I've used before, but the system also remains cooler and generates less vibration than my previous systems.

Great unit with very fast transfer speeds

JocelynFoote, CNET
18 February 2014
  • Summary: LaCie has been my favorite hard drive supplier for a while now, and I never expected to find myself needing a unit with 10TB of space. But when my photo restoration business took off I found I needed a reliable RAID system that wouldn't leave me waiting or wanting for many years to come. After looking around at what's available, I decided to buy this unit, and haven't looked back since. I'm really happy with its performance.

Fantastic product

Stephen Bianco, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: This thing is awesome. Its super fast, ridiculously quiet and runs really cool. I have had this drive for 6 months now and am really impressed. I have had horrible results with other enclosures and have lost drive after drive because of overheating. I can't believe how cool this thing runs. I would definitely recommend this drive to anyone in the market for a fast raid enclosure setup.

Quiet and Dependable

lCnneoM, CNET
15 December 2013
  • Summary: This drive has completely changed my entire workflow. The sheer speed of Thunderbolt is phenomenal, it lets me stream media directly from the unit. And the 10 TB is a good volume of space, both for storing current projects for development and my backups. Good quality hardware, too, I like the ease of identifying disks and hot swappability function. Very nice professional piece of kit.
  • Pros: 100% aluminum sturdy body, simple to use, quiet, fast, solidly constructed, roomy
  • Cons: a bit heavy
