5 out of 5 eggsWorks on my Mac with ZFS

Pros: Got this two years ago when it just came out. Has been working great with wd red drives in a MacZFS RaidZ (RAID5) configuration on my Mac Pro. I didn't use the included RR622 card but instead used my own eSATA card that had come with another RAID 10 solution.

Another positive: Power supply hasn't crapped out.

Cons: Works great. Wish it had 6 drives which would be perfect for a RAIDZ2 (RAID 6) in a 4+2 configuration.
