Hi 

I have a Pegasus 2 R6  with 12TB and I need to more space for editing 4k video.

At the moment it's impossible for me to buy a bigger raid

The oficial spec says that you can only use up to 4TB hardrives on this sytem

Has anyone used, tested using 6TB on the Pegasus 2 R6?

Can any one recommend any disks for this system?

Thanks very much

Carlos

Hi Arun

Sorry to bother you again wiht this subject:

I analyse the disc list yo sent me

The toshibas disks seem to have the better reviews

I am interested in getting 10TB (or at lest 8TB) disks for I will need a lot of space to work

The only 10TB disk on the list is the seagate ironwolf which does not seem to have such good reviews as the toshibas

I am using the raid for video editing

Please could you tell me which one would you recommend?

Kind Regards

Carlos
