This review is from: ORICO 3559RUS3 5 BAY USB 3.0 & E-SATA & RAID 0/1/3/5/10 3.5" SATA HARD DRIVE HDD ALUMINUM ENCLOSURE, UP TO 3TB
Pros: Good price for the tech. Uses same RAID controller software as ioiSATA SPM393.
Cons: No reviews. I was a little hesitant to purchase and be the guinea pig but, the price point made it hard to pass up. No regrets so far.
Other Thoughts: I used three 3TB Seagate NAS drives and two WD Green 3TB drives. (Current SPM393 array uses all WD Green drives and has been working for over 2 years with one rebuild due to me fiddling with HD cables - not recommending but, my experience has been a pleasant suprise.)
I recieved the box and populated it with 3TB drives, followed directions to setup a RAID5 array (set DIP switches and hold a button till it beeps). I placed a small file on the array, then pulled and reinserted a drive. *Array started rebuilding - file still accessible. Pulled same drive during rebuild and replaced with spare. *Array started rebuilding - file still accessible. Pulled power during RAID rebuild, waited a few seconds and powered back on. *Array continued rebuilding - file still accessible Pulled power and swapped drives in positions 2 and 4 then powered back on. *Detected new drive positions and continued rebuilding RAID5 array - file still accessible.
I couldn't figure out a way to trip it up, seems solid. Didn't try configurations other than RAID5. Took about 30 hours to transfer 8TB to the array over eSATA comes to roughly 75Mbps or just under 10MB/s. Don't know if the bottleneck is the box or my HDs but, fast enough for my implementation. Been up for almost a month now hosting files for PLEX/Owncloud servers and automatic backup of picture folders that are added to daily, so far flawless 5 Stars.
