Promise Pegasus R6
Dong Ngo here and I'm really cool.
I have here the MacBook Pro 2011 and here the very first thunderbolt hard drive that offer up to 12 terabyte of store space.
Now, lets go and impress a lady.
My boyfriend had a 15-terabyte Mac server.
In the case, I have two of these.
Do you wanna see my second MacBook Pro?
I have that one too.
Anyway, move on, these are the Pegasus R6 drive from Promise, the first storage device on the market that use the new Thunderbolt connection and has 6 drive base.
As a matter of fact, the only other thunderbolt device on the market is the Pegasus R4 that has only 4 base, but why settle for 4 when you can have a 6?
On the back here, the drive has 2 Thunderbolt ports.
One of them is to connect to a computer
while the other can be used with a mini display port device such as the Apple display LCD or another Thunderbolt storage device.
Up to 6 devices can be daisy-chained together like that without affecting performance of one another.
Meaning each of them you enjoy up to 10 gigabit per second downward.
On the front, you'd find the drive bay.
Each can be pulled out easily to reveal the hard drive inside.
The device here has six 2-terabyte SATA 3 drives that can be combined in reconfiguration to offer up to 12 terabyte of storage.
The device come with a Promise Utility that helps managing each RAID and monitor the internal hard drive's condition.
The hard drives can be chained from 1 RAID to another very fast.
In our testing, the Pegasus offers the fastest ever among all storage devices for consumers.
As a matter of fact, it's even faster than the internal drive of this MacBook Pro, which is a SATA 3 solid-state drive.
With great performance comes great cost.
The Pegasus R6 is not cheap, costing around 1500 dollars for the 6-terabyte version and this 12-terabyte version here cost around 2000 dollars.
This means only super cool people are able to afford one, never mind two.
Once again, my name is Dong Ngo and this has been the first look at the Pegasus R6 Thunderbolt drive from Promise.
