  • Excerpt: I only give it 4 stars because I have only had the unit for about a month. So far so good. RAID was very simple and the speed is what any video editor would want. B and H should ask in a year and if all systems are still "Go," I'll give it 5

Warning: Not Hardware RAID

Seth LaForge, Amazon
27 October 2014
  • Summary: I just connected this drive to my Mac Pro, and it works as advertised. It's also quiet, and drive access for replacement is pretty straightforward. However, I was surprised to discover that it uses Apple's software RAID for mirroring, rather than implementing hardware RAID directly.

  • Excerpt: I use this drive as a Time Machine backup for my 27" iMac. The Thunderbolt interface is a necessity for me for speedy backups, and the 8TB capacity is fantastic. What this drive does not have, and I've seen this before on many drives, is a power button.
  • Pros: Compact, Easy To Manage, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Highly Compatible
  • Cons: No Power Button
