Pros: Works fine in mirrored mode
Cons: Nothing much-a little pricier than others, but I've had other Orico units and they seem to hold up as well as any.
Other Thoughts: Re: speed as posted above: RAID1 is a mirror, and as such the write performance IS usually lower than a single drive (since it has to write and verify twice). Read is usually only improved if there are small files and it is reading several at once (and the controller supports splitting reads). But sequential reads will see no performance increase over a single drive at all. So the prior users experiences are inline with what to expect, but that isn't a negative- his expectations aren't reasonable.

Not Very Fast
Pros: USB3 + eSATA, modest size (one of the shortest 2-bay external RAID enclosures I've found,) actively cooled, tool-free
Other Thoughts: CrystalDiskInfo can't see past the enclosure to report SMART readings from the drives. Is this common in RAID enclosures? Perhaps it is, but still annoying.
