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.
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.
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.
Pros: great write & read speed, good looking, user friendly, large capacity
Summary: Finding the right storage solution is sometimes a challenge, and I researched long and hard before finally ordering this unit. I certainly haven't been disappointed. This thing works great. It is cool, quiet, and very fast. The construction quality is good.
Pros: high capacity, user friendly, great transfer speed
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.
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.
