    Promise Technology R6 reviews

    Pegasus3 R6 Mac Edition 24TB 6-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array (6 x 4TB) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Unit I purchased this for use with my new 2016 MacBook Pro. It fired up just fine when first attached via the Thunderbolt 3 cable that was supplied. I was able to transfer data from my very old Mac Pro with 4 hard drives to the new Pegasus via the network without any issues. The network was slow, but now with direct TB 3 connection between the new MacBook Pro and the Pegasus it is quite fast. I hope to eliminate all those dropped frames when doing my video editing and capture in Final Cut. The software utilities provided with the Pegasus seem to be quite helpful, but I haven't used them much. I chose to leave the configuration in the default RAID configuration. The appearance of the box is attractive and blends with my other peripherals. The unit is quiet and seems to be well ventilated with a couple of fans. My only hesitation is the Toshiba drives - I've had issues with this brand in the past. Hopefully they will hold up.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Thunderbolt 2 adapter and Mac Pro Happy to share that this works flawlessly with the cylinder Mac Pro and TB2 adapter.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I upgraded a 2012 27 iMac and a 2012 18TB Pegasus drive to a 2017 27 iMac and this Pegasus3 24TB drive. It's a ll i could ask for after 3 weeks. It's fast quiet and, so far, reliable. How fast? Transferring a 5.23GB file from the 2012 Pegasus RAID to the 2012 iMac's hard drive took 3min 56sec. On the 2017 iMac with the 2017 Pegasus3 the exact same file took 33.98 seconds. If your a photographer dealing with folders that contain 40MB images or 100MB or greater photoshop files such speed is most welcome.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fast and Good This is my second Promise Pegasus RAID. Still have the 1st one, going strong after nearly 4 years. This one is faster, and Thunderboltier.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Two Problems When Used with an iMac Pro I purchased this Pegasus3 system in December 2017 when I purchased my iMac Pro. �I have two problems with the Pegasus3. �When you install the latest Mac driver on the Pegasus website, it installs a file named Pegasus2R2ICON.kext which causes immediate ejection of all USB hard drives attached to the iMac Pro. � Remove the subject file and the drive ejection issue goes away while the Pegasus3 functions fine. With the Pegasus3 attached to the iMac Pro, I cannot boot into Windows 10 (installed using Bootcamp). �The iMac Pro will simply hang at the Windows 10 logo screen with the spinning circle of white dots. Disconnect the Pegasus3 and Windows 10 boots up fine. �Reatttach the Pegasus3 after windows 10 is running and it works fine. These are serious problems that I notified Promise Support about in January 2018 and I still have an open ticket with them. �They have never resolved either problem. �Beware of this Pegasus3 system if you plan to use it with an iMac Pro.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT, RELIABLE RAID STORAGE BY THE TB! (SYMPLY NOT INCL) This machine is a workhorse. It is a beast of a workhorse. Expect faster and more secure access to your TBs worth of data! I've been using mine for a few weeks and couldn't be more impressed. My only complaint is that this particular version was supposed to ship with software (or future access to the software) by Symply. The companies parted ways in a less than amicable fashion, leaving incorrect product info, advertisements, listings across the web and literature inside the box that still promised the software. Pegasus' own software does the job but is leaps and bounds from what was promised (ahem, your company is PROMISE TECHNOLOGIES for crying out loud)! As soon as Pegasus improves their native app (and perhaps offers a nice mobile toolkit) I'll be willing to go to a full 5 stars!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Reliable Storage I had been using a pegasus r4 for the last 4 years and never had an issue so I and just picked up this r6 and works great. The only noticeable thing about it compared to my r4 is that it is a bit louder than my r4. It's also bigger so kind of makes sense. Really solid and really well built. It's metal and not plastic like other brands.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most Excellent! Got this for my new MacBook Pro to store music and video files. This was very easy to set up. Like the blue lights. Connects every time I power up the Pro. Lots of storage space. Nice setup utility. I chose to do the default config.
