Pros: Unit is relatively small for the fact that it houses 8 HD's. All 8 HD's are PATA, but that is OK. USB interface works nicely and easily with no need for drivers in XP or Server 2003.
Cons: 4TB single volume configuration (dip switch 5 down) does NOT work! Confirmed with their tech support. Instead of a 4TB JOBD configuration, you can at best do 2 x 2TB volumes (dip switch 4 down). This is not an OS limitation, but a hardware limitation on this model. While XP cannot create a 4TB partition anyway due to MBR limitations, Server 2003 can, using GPT. Unfortunately this unit will not present a 4TB volume.
Other Thoughts: Should be advertised as 2 x 2TB, not 1 x 4TB! Aside from that it is a great device, provided you do not want the piece of mind of a more expensive RAID setup.
