3 out of 5 eggsToo loud

Pros: - Solid construction
- Lots of interface options (USB 3.0 / eSATA / FW800x2)
- Lots of RAID setup options
- Brushed metal exterior matches well with Mac Pro/iMac style

Cons: - LOUD fan
- "MUTE" button doesn't seem to do anything
- Loud alarm beep when turned on

Other Thoughts: Everything good except for how loud the fan on the unit is. It might be OK if pressing the "MUTE" button on the front of the unit turned the fan down or off, but it doesn't seem to do anything at all. It's too loud to leave powered on for my taste, and whenever it is turned on there is a piercing "alarm" beep.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for purchasing our products.

The mute button will mute the alarm, when RAID is degraded. It should not beep under the normal operation. If it always beeps, regardless of the mute button, please contact us for service.

If you are having problem on the unit, please contact us by calling 1-800-980-1988 for technical support and our engineer will try to resolve it over the phone. You can also contact us at for e-mail supports.
