Promise Technology P3R8HD48WUS overview

  • 1Description

Designed to work with today's Thunderbolt 3 desktops and laptops running Windows 7 and 10, the Pegasus3 R8 PC Edition 48TB 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array from Promise Technology is well-suited for backing up creative projects and digital libraries, as well as the simultaneous streaming, editing, and backup of 4K video. It can also perform tasks such as loading large files and databases, archiving images and important data, processing surveillance data, and backing up huge data sets. It offers up to 48TB of storage split over eight hot-swappable 6TB 3.5" hard drives, each of which utilizes one of the array's eight drive bays. The array itself is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, allowing users to daisy chain additional peripherals, such as dual 4K displays or a single 5K display.

The Pegasus3 R8 comes preconfigured in RAID 5 and supports a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 6, 10, 50, and 60, each of which offers speed, data redundancy, or a combination of both. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD is also available. Please be aware that RAID 0 does not support hot-swapping. Included is a 3.3' Thunderbolt 3 cable and a power adapter. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty, with 24/7 web and chat support also being available. Also included is a free license of ChronoSync Pegasus Edition Backup Software for macOS.

    Promise Technology P3R8HD48WUS reviews

    Pegasus3 R8 PC Edition 48TB 8-Bay Thunderbolt 3 RAID Array (8 x 6TB) is rated 2.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Item was defective - Support from Promise really not helpful We have 2 other Promise R8 Drive fromm the previous generation. They work well with our mac and PC seet-up even though the drive inside are of bellow average quality. We got the PC version of this latest generation to attach to the same set-up. The drive would seldom mount seldon not appear at all even in the device manager. Dealing with support from Promise was a huge waist of time. We had on hand 4 different adapters, from their list of compatible device A mac and a PC whicgh worked correctly with our previous generation R8 drives. They asked me to film and send photos of all my tests. Finally they asked me to buy a 5th adapter , exactly like the ones I had 2 of in the pictures I sent them. Then they conclusion was that both my computers had Thunderbolt problems and asked me to go to a Mac store try their drive (I bought explicitly the PC version), despite the fact that I send tehm pictures and video of my mac station and PC stations with all the test they asked me to perform and that I demonstratted that both my computers worked fine with their previous generation Thunderbolt 2 R8. Product was returned and this is my last purchase of Promise products. Please not that this device is not really backward compatible with thunderbolt 2. It is also not compatible with the thunderbolt Qnap even though I was told by customer support it was.
