Performs as advertised
Reviewed by Kendra M. Review Posted 16/12/2013

Compared to the storage systems I've used in the past this 5big is just about perfect for my nees. The quality of hardware is excellent, cooling fan is very quiet and effective. I like that the drives are well-labelled and easy to replace. Thunderbolt speeds are awesome, as expected. I've configured the unit to raid1 and it works well for me.

Works great

The 5big allows three different raid setups. I've opted for the JBOD configuration for storing RAW video footage. Everything works like a charm. Absolutely worth the investment, in my opinion.

Works well

I've been playing around a little with the settings on my 5big and settled for a combined Raid mode. This system works well for me. Setting it all up was quite easy, and thanks to the insane Thunderbolt speeds, shifting data around didn't take too long at all. No second thoughts, this is a great storage system for me.

Works like I expected it to
Reviewed by Phillip F. Review Posted 27/03/2014

I've been using this drive with my iMac and it's a match made in heaven. I'm very happy with this 10 TB model - it seems like an enormous amount of storage space, but actually once you set up custom RAID mode (two RAID arrays plus a spare drive), it's only 4 TB. Still, it's more than enough for me.

Reliable, Solid Product
Reviewed by Ciara. Review Posted 07/05/2014

This is a good drive for those who have extreme needs for space and speed. If you need those two things consider making the extra investment in a secure storage device with smart design and a full set of features like this one. You won't be disappointed. I for sure wasn't disappointed, and would recommend this unit for its reliability and value.

Fast and reliable
Reviewed by Silas Boyle. Review Posted 18/06/2014

This is my main drive for editing video projects. The data transfer speeds are very good. The drive combines the security of RAID with the power and speed of a truly pro design. I've been using it for about a year now and so far it's been totally reliable.

great drive
Reviewed by Pat C. Review Posted 29/07/2014

The 5big 10TB with Thunderbolt connections to take advantage of the combined access speed with the 5 drives on RAID 0, is a brilliant piece of design. Thunderbolt is at it's best in these conditions, and suddenly our production suite can operate as fast as our clients can change their minds :)

Reviewed by Lauren M. Review Posted 02/11/2014

As a designer, for too long I would have to struggle with the combination of external storage drives with my laptop. Since installing the 5big a couple of months ago I haven't had a problem. It works awesome..

This product is top quality, I'm pleased with it. The hot-swap bays are very practical, I'm planning to use that functionality for cold backups, and the Thunderbolt transfer speeds are just out of this world. Brilliant!
