Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 Solid and Fast
Pros: We are using two ARC-8050T2s to backup footage for a movie and have loaded it with WD Red 6TB drives. It works great and is extremely fast.
Cons: Setup instructions are a bit vague in areas. Make sure to reboot your computer after installing mraid. It also requires OSX 10.8 and is unusable on an older OS.

Pros: I liked the fact that it offered esata
Cons: power supply reliability. After less than 30 hours of service components gave out on the inside of the box so that it was not a simple swap out a transformer and power cord. Replaceable but not work I should have to do on a box with so few hours.
Other Thoughts: I would power it up when I needed to copy stuff into long term storage and was generally happy with it until the box electronoics developed issues. It no longer powers up and is probably not worth the time money and effort to fix it right.
Manufacturer Response:Dear customer,

We are sorry that your are having issue with the power board, you may contact our tech support dept at 888-231-7899 or email us at support@mediasonic.ca. We will look into get your power board replaced if needed

thank you

Categories > RAID Enclosure / Subsystems > SANS DIGITAL > Sans Digital 8-Bay eSATA RAID 0/1/10/5/JBOD Tower Storage Enclosure w/ 6G PCIe Card TR8M+B (Black)

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 Great when it works
Pros: 8 Bays
Hot swappable
Cons: Reliability
Power supply is garbage.
Other Thoughts: This thing worked great in the beginning. Then after about 2 or 3 weeks drives started dropping and the raid array would fail rebuilding with random drives. The drives would test just fine in another computer. Put them back in and they would fail saying bad sectors.

Then I got a spare ATX 400W and connected the molex connectors to the backplane. It ran great, array would rebuild with no drive failures. I have a 350W matx PSU on order.

If you want performance, don't bother with the 622 card. The 642 cards performance is pretty good. I was able to get real world write speeds of around 180MB/s in RAID5. Also the 642 card supports RAID50 as the 622 doesn't.

Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4Rating + 4 Nice little box
Pros: Works as advertised.
Cons: Cables are a bit short.
Rebate took 5 months to receive from newegg. I have had poor experiences in the past with rebates coming directly from sans digital so I thought newegg would be much faster. But it wasn't. No excuse for that.
