OWC/Other World Computing THUNDERBAY IV 12TB Quick Review
Just picked up the OWC/Other World Computing THUNDERBAY IV 12TB with 4 bays of 7200rpm Toshiba drives, formatted it RAID 0, filled it with 8TB of data and am now seeing the following:
When it was empty it tested faster than the internal 1TB Flash Storage in my iMac with Retina 5K display, showing no x’s in the matrix.
Conclusion: If I had it to do over again I would save the $800 for the internal 1TB Flash Storage in my iMac and just keep all data on this OWC/Other World Computing THUNDERBAY IV. Pick up this Thunderbolt 2 device at Adorama and/or B&H. Either place is selling the 12TB version for $949 at this time. There is a 20TB version going for about $1,600.
