This review is from: SANS DIGITAL TowerRAID TR4XHA - 4 Bay SAS / SATA RAID 5 Storage Enclosure (Silver)
Pros: Easy to setup.
Cons: Bought one enclosure and drives in bay 1 didn't work (RAID 10, configured in BIOS). I swapped the drives around, the drives were fine in other bays but never worked in the top bay. This problem became worse over time, eventually my system would not complete a boot into XP unless bay 1 was empty. Bought a second enclosure to replace it, same problem, drives in bay 1 did not work in the RAID 10 I had configured in BIOS.
