    The Promise Pegasus2 M4 has a appearance that is similar to that of the Promise Pegasus2 R4 and is not as compact as the J4.

    I'm using 4 SSD's in the regular Pegasus2 R4 (whatever it's called - the empty one sold on the Apple store). This new one is no different, other than being smaller, more portable, and unable to accept 3.5" drives. If you don't need more portability then the bigger one is identical.

    Correct. The m4 would be great for people like myself who prefer a small footprint on the desk, where space is at a premium.

    They should fly, and it will be interesting to see the size specs on the M4.

    That Promise image is deceptively not to scale. The R4/R6/R8 units are 7.3" x 9.6", while the nMP is 6.6" diameter. The nMP will sit on top of them easily without sticking over the sides (not that you would want it up there).

    The R6 unit is close to the same height as the nMP, and the R8 unit is a couple of inches taller than the nMP.

    It will be perfect if M4 has the diskless option like R4.
