Configuration software is not currently compatible with OSX Mavericks.

Summary: Configuration software is not currently compatible with OSX Mavericks. I need to use this drive as mirrored so need to use the software. WD has given no indication of when/if it will be compatible. I had no choice but to send this back.
Summary: Reviewing 6TB Studio II: This "high performance" drive is slower in Raid0 than many single FW800 drives I use. Drive Genius benchmarks were very disappointing, with results in the 2-50 MB/second range, hardly better than I'd expect from a USB2 connected external.
Summary: I had high hopes for this drive. RAID 1 capability, ready to use with a Mac right out of the box. It didn't disappoint....until less than a week of usage and one of the drives failed. I am returning this one and exchanging for a new unit.
Summary: I used this drive as my Mac "Time Machine" backup drive. The drive started running really, really slow. I ran "Verify" with Disk Utility. It kept bumping up the time to complete, 3 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours. Then I heard a thump, thump, thump from the drive. Ack!
