While i also find the Apple products a bit overpriced in general people seems to say something like this everywhere. First the most part makes the 4TB space here. Low specs is also relative. Also some problems are dramatized (but they exist). Then you pay for customer service which i must say is really good from my experience compared to other companies. Of course that can vary a lot. At the end....Logic is my DAW. Best bang for buck so far for me.
