This review is from: ORICO Aluminum 4 bay 3.5 inch USB3.0 to SATA HDD Docking Station Enclosure with RAID Function Support RAID 0/ 1/ 3/ 5/ 10/ Combine/ Clear Mode [Support UASP and 8TB Drive Max] -Black (9548RU3)
Pros: Looks good.
Good build quality.
Easy to install drives and use the software to configure the RAID array.
Fairly quiet (at least when it is not being accessed).
Decent price for the functionality.
Cons: The locks for the drive bays wouldn't keep anyone out that really wanted in - they are cheap plastic and the 'keys' really don't fit well. But this feature is not important to me.
SATA II drive interfaces and lack of eSATA means that this may not be the highest performance solution, but that wasn't the most important thing for my application.
Other Thoughts: I used four 2 terabyte enterprise grade drives to build a RAID 5 array that I use for backup purposes. I have been using it for about a month now and everything is working great.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great Resolution. Bright. Good selection of Inputs. USB 3.0 hub. Tilt/swivel and adjustable height stand. Overall, a beautiful thing (especially with 2 of them).
Other Thoughts: I have had one of these for almost a year and got a 2nd one about 3 months ago. I can't image going back to a "low-resolution" 1920x1080 monitor! I always have multiple programs running with multiple windows and often need to be able to simultaneously view multiple pages of text. This set-up is great for that. I run one using the DP and the other using the DVI input. The one running DP sometimes does some "strange" things where a part of the display will first show up in the wrong place and then move within a few frames to the right location, but I don't know if that is the monitor or the display adapter (probably the display adapter).READ FULL REVIEW
