Could not get it to work in JBOD mode

S. Greene, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I tried two of these units, and both failed in the same way. The unit comes configured as RAID0 striped, which is best for performance and uses all 8TB, but if either drive fails you could lose the entire volume; so in my case I'd need two of these units with one as a backup of the other, which was...

Excellent Solution

  • Excerpt: I used to have two separate external hard drives on my desk, one for photos and the other for Time Machine back ups, and, a third hard drive in my fire safe.

Perfect large RAID array

CotyM, Amazon

Works as advertized

  • Excerpt: I only give it 4 stars because I have only had the unit for about a month. So far so good. RAID was very simple and the speed is what any video editor would want. B and H should ask in a year and if all systems are still "Go," I'll give it 5
