This review is from: PROMISE Pegasus J4 J4US RAID 0/1, JBOD 2 x Thunderbolt Port Thunderbolt Enabled Storage (Enclosure Only)
Pros: fast and stable for long copies.
Cons: This unit does not boot. Repeat this is bootless.
I own a promise pegasus r6 great gear and it boots. I own a pegasus r4 great gear and it boots. I own a pegasus j2 decent piece of gear and it boots. I own a lacie little big disk and it boots. Lastly i own a seagate stae 121 thunder bolt adapter and it boots. So making thunderbolt boot is the rule not the exception.. Imagine my surprised when this gear does not boot.
To make it worse it stacks to perfection with an apple mac mini. A piece of gear that has very limited disk options and to diy a hdd to ssd upgrade voids warranty. So to put it very simply What T F is promise thinking. What engineer or CEO or pencil pushing moron allowed this. My other promise gear has been close to perfect. So now when I have a lot of clients that want a neat clean mac mini storage/booting upgrade the perfect form (pegasus j4) is half function just storage not boot.
The perfect function(pegasus r6 ,r4 and j2 is the wrong form. I have written nasty but completely true reviews about this in 3 sites . I wish the manufacture would tell us they have a firmware fix for this. So sad truly sad that a company could do this. Basically they are only hurting their bottom line for no apparent reason.
