Brad Bussell is one user I know of who just received his V2, I know he's very happy with it
& I'm sure he'll post something on this forum about it. His original inquiry was through this exact forum!

I hope Brad posts - I hope he says what OS he is using, and what his speeds are.

Looking forward to it!

Bob,

I indeed have a EB800MS that I received as a bare unit that I populated with Seagate enterprise drives and I have the 12GB to 6GB cables since I'm connecting to an Areca 1223x. It's currently in the middle of initializing as RAID-6 as I type this, but I'll post later when I've had a chance to test the speeds etc. The build quality is great, very sturdy and I like the thumbscrews for easy swapping of the 80mm fans and the locks too. Jon and his team have been extremely helpful--top notch customer service.

-Brad

So a quick update--I just rebooted and ran the AJA System Test, Disk Read/Write, 1920x1080 10-bit RGB, 16.0 GB File Size and file system cache disabled. This is on a 2010 5,1 Mac Pro running 10.9.2. I populated with Seagate Constellation ES.3 2TB drives (Enterprise SAS w/ 128MB cache) and striped as RAID-6 w/ 1MB Stripe. Areca 1223x w/ latest firmware then latest BIOS before initialization:dis

Write: 950.5 MB/s
Read: 916.1 MB/s

I just ran the same exact test on my Pegasus2 R6 connected to my 2013 6,1 Mac Pro which I got last month and is currently 30% full (6 disk array striped as RAID-5):

Write: 811.0 MB/s
Read: 848.8 MB/s

Both of these arrays are being used primarily for ProRes HQ 1080/60p.

edit: To clarify, the EB800MSv2 has a 12GB backplane, but I'm connecting it to an Areca 1223 which is only 6GB.

Bob, we're working with PC game footage, cg comps, and a C100 for green screen, so there really wasn't a need to swap the 1223x out for a 1883x, but I'm sure someone will post results of that match soon for 4K usage. I'm not populating the unit today, so if you are really dying to see the results and you know of someone in LA who has a 1883x and 2 8644 to 8644 cables who is willing to drop them off at our El Segundo office today, I'd be willing to rebuild and test the numbers for you.

I had actually ordered the 1223x along with the v1 case, but then got an email from B&H saying that the item that had been ordered was no longer in stock (B&H is great but they've been very slow on updating items in a timely manner the past few months). So Jon connected me to Thomas Kloeffler at Safe Harbor since they had the v2 in stock. Thomas was also very helpful and the original cables I had were through Safe Harbor so he helped arrange an RMA so I could order the 8644 to 8088 cables that I needed.

I already mentioned it, but when I considered ProAvio they were a new kid on the block to me but they seemed to be offering a solid product at a very affordable price. I can definitely attest to the very solid build quality of the unit. But above and beyond that, as you well know, when dealing with storage solutions having a vendor who is accessible and provides great customer service is a very important thing. ProAvio is top notch in that department.
