5 out of 5 eggsGood Device - AMAZING CUSTOMER SUPPORT

Pros: Good solid product that is well designed and easy to assemble and configure. Performs well - though only been running for three weeks. The customer service was fantastic on a minor issue (see Cons).

Cons: The only issue I had was with the documentation for use in an Apple environment. I emailed tech support two days before the Christmas holidays and got a response within an hour. After a few exchanges I had the RAID configured, formatted, integrated and running. I can't say enough about how impressed I was with the technical support.

Other Thoughts: I was going to give SD a half egg ding BUT the documentation issue was more than made up for by the quick and thorough technical support so Sans Digital gets five golden eggs+ for the great design, solid performance and exceptionally competent and effective support.
