Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by n/a Depending on how you connect this to your system will give you issues. If you have an older PC with a PCI USB3 card, Windows 10 has issues finding drivers, just search "windows 10 USB PCIe support". When upgrading from Windows 7 to 10, the problem still exists. I've finally got it working. Speeds are great, Read is 179.6 MB/s Write is 110MB/s according to Task Manager. Disk isn't detected on a warm boot but it is found on a cold boot (a restart drops device from machine, a shutdown and startup brings it back - this may just be the PCIe card I'm using kt4007 chip) I tested the rebuild of 4x1TB disks, pop one out to break array (alarm goes off, beeps), then put another one in - took a few hours to rebuild, you can still access the disk. PC does not need to be on during this rebuild. Software is very basic, it's just a rebrand but does the job, allows e-mail if raid fails, creates various RAID levels also does "Clone" and "Large". Haven't used the disk duplication options so can't comment. Current setup has 4x4TB WD Red on RAID 5 with 11TB usable space using Cobian Backup 11 Gravity for backups. When no activity on the disks (you can set this time-out), the unit stops the disks, so can be left on 24/7 - the front LCD screen is bright so may not be great at night. The unit can get hot with first constant use (initial Full Backup but incremental spins less). When popping out disks, it seems pretty "raw", it's not that smooth, the spring action is could be better but seems you have to squeeze it in, it's a tight fit. The door is swing action and seems flimsy but nothing major. If you are looking for a backup for all your devices (with RAID capability), I'd recommend this, if you have more than 8TB of data and just need it to work. Else get a 2 disk array and spend less. 27 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent recovery from disk loss, think through RAID mode choice Replacing a disk allows continued use but for maximum resilience, including loss of Tower, choose RAID1, which allows data recovery from individual disks 15 November 2014

Capacity

Hi, I'm looking for cheap mass storage solution. I want to add 4x 6TB HDD to a device (24TB in total) to use as cheap backup for several NAS drives. Ultimately this device will be unplugged and stored in a fire safe in an alternate building after each backup.

1. Can this device take 4x 6TB drives in total?
2. Can you add each drive dynamically as/and when you need to add more storage. ie. start with 1x 6TB, when its full, add the next 6TB drive so the total is 12TB and so on all the way to 24TB in total??
3. In addition, what 6TB drives do you recommend.??

If this device not suitable, please advise a cheap alternative that will fulfill my requirements??? I can't afford to buy more than 2x 6TB at any one time, so want to buy and add the 6TB drives as required by basis, probably one a month over the forthcoming 6 months.Device would store large Blu-Ray movie rips, Music FLAC files and primarily professional RAW image files from 24M Cameras.

Many thanks

Answer: 
1) I don't believe this device supports 6TB disks, I believe 4TB is the max but firmware upgrades could allow for this in the future (or not).

2) You can add one disk then add another when it's full but it won't be in a RAID set, it won't be seen as a single disk (so if that disk fails, you lose 6TB of data). Your Raid Tower becomes just a bunch of disks. So depending if you want to have the redundancy of raid, it won't work with one disk added at a time - you can't create a RAID 5 set with one disk. You'll also never get 24TB on a RAID 5 set using 4x6TB disks you'd get 18TB max if that.
