PROMISE Pegasus R6 Named "Editor's Choice" by Digital Reviews

Continued Accolades for Industry's First Thunderbolt™ Enabled Storage Solution

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 9, 2011) - PROMISE Technology, Inc., a leader in providing high-performance storage solutions for the rich media market and the leader in designing cutting-edge Thunderbolt™ enabled devices, today announced that its innovative line of Pegasus storage solutions has been awarded the "Editor's Choice" award by Digital Reviews Network, receiving an overwhelming score of 10 out of 10. PROMISE Pegasus is the world's first Thunderbolt hardware RAID storage solution providing lightning fast performance, in 4-bay & 6-bay direct attached storage configurations, all leveraging Intel's revolutionary Thunderbolt Technology.

"We are very excited that our ground-breaking Pegasus series has received yet another award having previously been awarded the prestigious Pick Hit Award at IBC, and named 'Best External Storage Partner for Apple' at Macworld Asia 2011," said Alice Chang, CMO, PROMISE Technology. "Our line of Thunderbolt enabled products is another example of our commitment to creative professionals and the rich media community. We look forward to introducing more products that meet the creative markets demand for innovative storage solutions."

From the recently published review by Paul Moons, editor of Digital Reviews (October 24, 2011)

"While the Pegasus R6 may be targeted at creative artists who need large storage and high speed for audio/video or photographic editing, the ease of use, high storage capacity and performance will appeal to the enthusiast and prosumer alike. As data storage sizes increase even the lay consumer is starting to acclimatise themselves to more complex storage solutions. Despite the obvious technological advances of Thunderbolt, the R6s biggest selling point might be the way it non-threateningly introduces the masses to effectively store massive amounts of data via RAID."

Our rating? A 10/10! This qualifies the PROMISE Pegasus R6 to receive our Editor's Choice Award!
