Mediasonic HUR1-SU3S2 2-Bay RAID 0/1/Single USB 3.0/eSATA 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Thanks to Other Posters 06/22/2013

This review is from: Mediasonic HUR1-SU3S2 2-Bay RAID 0/1/Single USB 3.0/eSATA 3.5" SATA HDD Enclosure

Pros: Works with 4TB drives in RAID-1. Very Quiet and in a small box. No complaints about functioning.

Cons: I am using an E-Sata connection. Be forewarned, should you have a mobo as mine (ASUS P9X79PRO) that the unit is not hot swapable using E-Sata. Tto use you must turnthe unit on prior to booting computer for the drive to be recognized. However, the unit IS hot swapable with USB.

. .

Other Thoughts: Thanks to others who stated this enclosure DOES work with 4TB Drives! Why manufacturers don't make this clear is amazing! This ambiguity is surprisingly pervasive.

THANKS to other customers who explained setting the RAID button on inside the box (hold down button while powering).

It would be nice if manufacturers would spend a little time explaining how re-synchronisation works if one drive goes bad. I lost 2 1/2 months data on an internal RAID-1 when I did not know one drive(went offline (windows didn't say - I found out in control panel disk manager by accident), and all data written to the one drive for that duration was lost - ONLY when suddenly, inexplicably, the controller found the second drive and rebuilt the RAID - as of 2 1/2 months prior. I lost all interim data which had been written to the one drive.

MORAL OF STORY: RAID-1 works until it doesn't: ALWAYS BACK UP YOUR DATA. and make sure in Control Panel/Disk Manager that NO RAID DRIVE is ever off line! If the system chooses to rebuild the RAID later you could lose all data saved to the one drive during that interim.

CineRAID CR-H252 Hardware RAID, Supports RAID 0, 1, JBOD 2 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Purchased (2) Seagate ST3000DM001 3TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s. Initialized GPT to see all 3GB (2.72GB) as one partition.

Works as advertised on RAID-1 connected via USB 2.0.

Cons: I have a new ASUS P9X79PRO Mobo and the USB 3.0 chipsets are ASMedia chipsets which is not compatible with this CineRAID CR H252 RAID box according to CineRAID tech support. In fact, the first thing the rep asked was to try USB 2.0!

Further, I purchased this during a Newegg bundled special last week which came with a Highpoint RocketU 1022A PCIe 2-port USB3.0 card as a bonus. Unfortunately, it turns out this Highpoint card also uses the ASMedia chipset.

Summary Point: Make sure you are using a USB 3.0 compatible chipset if you intend to use this box with USB 3.0. Because my mobo is high-end and only 6 months old, and Highpoint used the same USB 3.0 chipset, I can only give this otherwise seemingly great unit 3 stars.

Other Thoughts: I suppose it is too much work for Newegg to check manufacturer compatibility when they bundle related products.
