4 out of 5 eggsQuick speeds and simple basic

Pros: Unit feels solid, setting up RAID was simple but may not be intuitive for first time RAID users. e-sata and USB 3.0 both offer fast transfer speeds depending upon how the box is setup. Status LEDs on front are easy to understand and convenient.

Cons: The included external e-sata card doesn't fully like my motherboard. It overrides boot drive selection if it detects a volume making windows not start. (this problem may be specific to my system) I also can't seem to enter bios if it is plugged in with an active volume. This problem doesn't exist when plugged in via USB 3.0.

Other Thoughts: Setup was relatively easy since I knew which style of RAID I wanted to use, I just have the above mentioned problem when running it into the included e-sata card. Should I have a HDD failure I'll write a new review to talk about how the rebuild process was.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product!

Pros: Using eSata (6gb), I'm getting 244mb/s read and 220mb/s write to a raid 0 array. I have two of these arrays and they have been very dependable. The USB 3 connection is a good backup but is slightly slower and in some cases will need to be connected to a usb hub.

Cons: None that I have seen in over two years of use.

Other Thoughts: Good value for the money.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not buy!

Pros: Convenient, USB connected. True hardware RAID 5.

Cons: This unit has had all kinds of problems. When I first got it, it would not recognize a couple of the drives even though they worked fine testing them on another controller. Also, for some reason, when this thing is connected to any computer it will prevent it from booting at the memory check during POST. So anytime the computer it's connected to is rebooted the USB cable needs to be unplugged first or else it will just hang forever. Tried this on three different computers including a Dell server. Now, 6 months after the warranty is up the power supply goes out which they so conveniently have an online store to purchase them at $70 a pop. Save yourself the heartache and get a NAS from some of the other quality manufacturers on here.
