Yeah, I recently set up my new iMac with a Promise Pegasus 4TB raid5 and it took 11 hours to format the array. I was shocked!

I cannot deny anything I did not say.

setting up a 6tb raid array (can't remember the number) on a ucs c-series took upwards of 5 hours. this was on a dual 12-core machine with 48gb of ram.
