Hi, I have an P2 R4, running 4, 4TB Black WD7200.

All is running really well since initial installation and configuration to RAID 0.

The firmware installed is 5.04.0000.18.

My question: Is there a newer firmware available AND would I be gaining any substantial benefit from the update?

Well, as I was afraid. I did two updates to the Utilty App, and the third time the Firmware came up...

Now after it said it will reboot, the Drive is not recognized, and it did not power down...

Whew!... OK so I had to power down the Drive by physically disconnecting the power cord... then I hooked everything back up... and Voila... Kinda scary... I hate doing this stuff..
