Pros: We are using two ARC-8050T2s to backup footage for a movie and have loaded it with WD Red 6TB drives. It works great and is extremely fast.
Cons: Setup instructions are a bit vague in areas. Make sure to reboot your computer after installing mraid. It also requires OSX 10.8 and is unusable on an older OS.
