Too bad that Promise has fouled things up by restricting the drive options for the enclosure.

Would there be a noticeable difference in performance between Pegasus2 and a comparable USB3 external drive solution (assuming hard drives, not SSDs) hooked to the nMP?


The compatibility list can be found here:  http://www.promise.com/media_bank/Download%20Bank/Compatibility/Pegasus2_Compatibility%20List%20v1.1-201301216.pdf

Note the difference with the Promise Pegasus2 diskless model and the model that ships with disks installed. They are not the same.

OK, maybe this is a better comparison. There are three storage devices on my MacPro. The Apple internal SSD (256GB), Seagate Backup Plus for Mac-Thunderbolt 1 (3TB SATA), Pegasus2 R4-Thunderbolt 2 (8TB configured in RAID 5 reducing capacity to 6TB). The slowest was the Seagate drive.
