Packaging and a Closer Look

Packaging for the R2+ is rather sleek with an image of the DAS below and minimal marketing information above.

Cables included with the R2+ include a Thunderbolt cable, USB 3.0 cable and power cable. To the far left, we also have a second USB 3.0 cable for the included pod.

Taking a look at the Pegasus2, we have the power button on the left in the glossy area of the enclosure with the SD pod housed in the media bay. Each of the three bays is easily ejectable with their respective buttons to the right of the bay.

The rear of the enclosure is rather simple with a large cooling fan with the dual Thunderbolt and USB 3.0 ports to the right. At the bottom, we have the power input for the built-in power supply.

The drives being put to work in the Promise Pegasus2 R2+ are Toshiba 3TB 7200RPM solutions.

Above we take a closer look at the SD and Compact Flash pod.

As mentioned in the introduction, these pods include both a SATA interface and USB 3.0 connection for use in the Pegasus and standalone.
