Other Thoughts: I bought this enclosure in Jan 2010 to house 5 Seagate 1.5 TB HDs connected to an Ubuntu Server 10.04 LTS 32-bit server and configured using software raid-5 (mdadm). The initial setup was eady, ableit long to form the raid-5 array (which should be a given using this setup). The enclosure and the array has been running without a problem ever since. Never a problem is dropping the array or disks, array rebuilds on reboot... nothing. Oh, and for those who like to be critical of consumer grade or brand <insert name here> drives, I've never lost a drive either.
If you just getting started or need a simple expansion, I highly recommend this unit.
