1 out of 5 eggsStay away!

Pros: Easy setup, fast disk access.

Cons: NO RECOVERY OPTIONS!

Other Thoughts: The array is plenty fast and easy to set up. BUT. I have 4 Seagate 3TB drives in a RAID 5 config, and I have one drive that's probably failing. But not failed enough that the array is indicating there's an error. The symptoms are the array stops responding for periods, the disk lights flash in weird patterns, and now some content is inaccessible.

The Sans Digital Hardware RAID tool doesn't give any ability to control the array, and they say that's it's all controlled by the hardware in the box. But since the Event Log shows no error, I can't determine which drive is failing.

I called Sans Digital, and their response was to remove all the drives from the box and connect them one at a time directly to the computer. Then I'm to run Segate's SeaTools software against the drive to see if it's failing.

This is a horrific solution. Their old software RAID boxes could verify and rebuild the array from commands from the web interface. It also had logs that would show the number of bad sectors. This hardware RAID solution, although faster than the software RAID, provides NO recovery options at all.

STAY AWAY from this!

Manufacturer Response:

I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. For the HW Raid Manager event log, the service must be running for events to be logged. In the event of a failed disk, both the enclosure drive LEDs and the HW Raid Manager will display which disk has failed. Since this wasn't the case, there must be another issue that would require further investigation to determine.

To discuss your case further, please call 1-800-980-1988 to get in touch with one of our Technical Engineers, or email us at tech@sansdigital.com.
