    Seems like a pretty good device if you're looking to fork out the money for it.

    Here is a pretty good review.

    Seems like a decent kit if you need a storage system with a SSD-like performance with a large capacity and you are on a budget.

    If you want something with disks included, the WD Thunderbolt Duo's are reasonably priced… You can get 8TB for around $650.

    Thunderbolt cable not included unfortunately. You would have to fork over more money for that. Lame!

    :confused: On Amazon (at least), it clearly states the cable is included.

    Not that five hard drives could possibly require more than 10GBit/s, but Promise announced the Pegasus2 with Thunderbolt 2 and a new 8-bay model along with it, so you can "synergize the ultimate innovation of the new Mac Pro and Thunderbolt 2 with the capacity and performance of the industry's fastest storage solution, Pegasus2."

    My bad, I was referring to Western Digital's Online Store.
