Pros: Given that you can store incredible amounts of data on this array, your confidence has to be high. So far so well, but I've had other RAID5 arrays that take a day or two to rebuild so I would always suggest having a 'green' drive or two as a backup. Green drives are good for rare access and unsuitable for RAID - mine has Toshiba disks and 170 kB sustained over USB3.

Cons: No JBOD options on this chassis - per design

Other Thoughts: This is not a Just a Bunch Of Disks chassis - if you shove disks in here, they will become a RAID0 spanned array at the lowest size. Don't do that. Put in a bunch of 3TB drives, select RAID5 by holding top button until it flashes, move to RAID5, press button on back (under tab) until array shuts off. When it comes back, you have a RAID5 array for a bargain. Buy another when you realize how cheap it is.
