Summary: This 2Tb array is a great deal. It worked as a Raid 1 drive right out of the box and was reconfigured to Raid 0 using the supplied utilies in about 10 minutes. The trick is you have to READ THE DIRECTIONS. You can't skim over them or just look at the pictures.
Summary: It was difficult to install, directions have alot to be desired. Drive is shipped with the drives unplugged from the socket, this requires the disassembly of the unit. Drive is also shipped raid "1," wanted raid "0." After 1 day of toying with the drive I got it to work.
Summary: Setup is a little painful because they provided incorrect/insufficient documentation for the product (even on their website). Luckily I was able to contact customer service and she walked me through the setup (this included dis-assembling the drive array).
Summary: I was kind of worry after buying this disk because although I had read some reviews it wasn't after I bought it that the bad reviews appeared. Documentation No paper documentation, only a CD but really it is very bad. Installation Some reviews talk about hours of doing this correctly.
