Pros: 1. RAID
3. Bus powered ... no power supply needed (not on my Macs, anyway.)
4. Extremely simple setup.
5. Quality materials, fit, and finish.
6. USB 3
7. The price is very inexpensive, IMO.
Cons: I'm really trying to come up with something here ... but so far it's been perfect, and I can't think of anything that I wish was different.
Other Thoughts: I have been waning a RAID enclosure for 2 2.5" drives for a year or more, but held off until I saw that the USB 3 version of this enclosure had hit the market.
For my needs, I use RAID 1 (Mirroring) to safeguard irreplaceable data. Sure, you can drop the thing while it's running and trash both drives, but that's life ... be careful not to do that. I also back everything up to a RAID 1 NAS, so this is bonus protection for me.
After setting the two switches for RAID 1, OS X Disk Manager saw it as a single 1TB drive, which I then partitioned and encrypted with TrueCrypt. All without a hitch, and it's been working just fine since then. (Granted, less than a week, but if I have any issues I will update this review.)
I very highly recommend this product if you're on the market for a 2.5" RAID housing.
This review is from: Logitech F310 Gamepad with broad game support and customizable buttons
Pros: Good quality, works perfectly, great price.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I've had this thing for several months now and it's been flawless. I am a PC gamer and a diehard Mouse & Keyboard guy, but for racing games, I prefer a controller like this.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I've had many external housings over the years (remember how exciting SCSI II was?), and in the last decade almost all of them have been Vantec. I highly recommend the brand in general when it comes to housings.
Cons: None so far; they've all be flawless over the years.READ FULL REVIEW
