Rosewill RSV-S4-6G 4-Bay 3.5” Hot-Swappable RAID 0, 1, 10, 5, 5+spare, Spanning and JBOD Enclosure, Bundled with RAID Controller Card up to 6Gb/s Transfer Rate
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy solution to build a RAID-enabled disk library.

Cons: The enclosure really gives me a hard time. I changed it via RMA two times and I have same problems. The card RocketRaid 622 is disaster. It gives BSOD pretty often and I started to look for a similar card, but it is not easy. Last few days the enclosure starts generating a lot of errors, it constantly tries to rebuild the RAID volume by some reason.
I am gonna to give up and move HDDs to another desktop. Unfortunately the server does not have enough internal slots to accommodate those disks.

Other Thoughts: Spend $200-250 for new desktop case + CPU + RAM rather buying this unreliable enclosure. It is a joke.

Pros: Really good enclosure. I liked ability to run scheduled tasks for media verification. Easy setup, almost Plug and Play.
WHS 2011 server.

Cons: The card died after 40 days of using. The server freezes during the boot process. It even blocks system BIOS. The PCIx card was the problem. I asked for replacement but was advised to send the whole enclosure back. Now I'm waiting for replacement.
It says that supports 3Tb drives. No! When I tried to create a RAID-10 from two 2Tb and two 1Tb drives, I was offered 2Tb volume.

Intel EXPI9301CTBLK Network Adapter 10/ 100/ 1000Mbps PCI-Express 1 x RJ45
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I bought this NIC for my self-made home servers (XPC + Windows Home Server 2011). The card was detected instantly, but I downloaded latest Intel drivers and I was not disappointed: transfer speed immediately was boosted from 30 Mb/s up to 50-60Mb/s!

Cons: Built-in Windows drivers does not unleash whole power of the NIC. Always install the latest Intel drivers.
