2Bay Firewire | USB 3.0 DAS Button Tray RAID | Enclosure - Black
Are you thinking about installing an ultrafast RAID array, but you either have a laptop, don't want to open up your PC, and/or don't want to mess with drivers and complicated configurations? Monoprice has the answer to your needs in the form of this 2-bay 3.5" HDD USB 3.0/eSATA/Firewire 800 RAID Enclosure!
This RAID enclosure is perfect for increasing data throughput speed using the RAID 0 striping mode or for increasing data security using the RAID 1 mirror mode. It supports two 3.5" SATA III (6.0 Gbps) drives up to 3TB each and has even been tested with the latest Hitachi 4TB drives for up to 8TB of storage using the RAID 0 mode.
This aluminum enclosure is completely self-contained, with everything needed to connect to a Windows, Mac, or Linux computer using a USB cable (included), except the drives themselves, of course. It has a built-in 70 watt power supply, which provides 12 VDC and 5 VDC power levels from any 100 ~ 240 VAC power source, and a 60mm fan to keep things cool. In addition to the USB 3.0 interface, it includes an eSATA II (3.0 Gbps) and two Firewire 800 ports.
It features an energy (and drive) saving standby mode, which is automatically activated when the connected PC is put into "sleep" or "standby" mode. Drive installation is made easier with the ability to hot swap drives in and out of the system without turning off either the enclosure or the connected PC. Most importantly, it contains all the controllers, drivers, and software needed to operate and maintain the RAID array, making RAID installation and configuration as simple and easy as it can possibly be.
