Scot M. Walker, Amazon
4 May 2015
  • Summary: I bought two of these (one for backup) and they read on my 2013 Mac Pro at 930 megs per second, according to an AJA benchmark. They are very quiet for non-flash hard drives. I have them on my desk behind my monitors. Very quiet. They wake from sleep very quickly too. I don't have a negative.

Works exactly as intended!

Smoores, B&H Photo
18 November 2014
  • Excerpt: I have 3 of the drives setup as a RAID 5, and the remaining two setup as a RAID 1. Works exactly as expected, and thunderbolt 2 is incredibly fast. The RAID management software has a bit of learning curve, but once figured out, it's pretty straight forward.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Connectivity, Versatile

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.

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.

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.

Easy setup

John M., Amazon
18 June 2013
  • Summary: The 5Big Thunderbolt drive arrived well packaged and ready-to-go out of the box configured as a Raid0 10TB drive (fast). After doing some tests, I decided to reconfigure it as a Raid0 6TB drive for fast Timemachine backups of my 3TB fusion drive, and a 2TB mirror (Raid1) for my sensitive documents.

Speeeeeeedy--perfect for digital media production

Bri, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • Summary: What an amazing product--I have a digital media production company where I have to sling around large photography images and even bigger video files from the likes of up to the Canon C300 editing in FCPX--this thing blasts through all of it, like a hot knife through butter.
