4 out of 5 eggsworks fine, fans went bad

Pros: works well.

Cons: fans suddenly got very loud, typical of a cheap fan.

Other Thoughts: luckily there is a fan on/off switch, so i didnt have to take it apart to disable the suddenly noisy fans.

to do RAID with USB3, you have to install Dyconn's HW RAID software. it looks cheesy, but i have it running a RAID1 on Server 2008 R2.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks like a champ

Pros: Quiet
Energy efficient
Flexible configuration

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Took less than 15 minutes to install drives and configure the unit. I'm using two WD 1TB drives I bought some time ago in a RAID1 (mirrored) configuration connected via USB3. I hear the drives spin up/down, but the enclosure itself is very quiet. Fan operation is temperature based. The fan turned on briefly when the unit was powered up, but hasn't been needed since. Note that if you use the eSATA interface your controller must support port replication. This is not an issue with USB3.
