Works straight out of the box

  • Summary: Very quick delivery, does it says it will. I wanted a caddy for various drives without the need for hot swapping but didn't want them RAID configured, just as they are and just pressing on gave me what I wanted.

It was easy to set up - select the mode

Simple solution. Buy it!

  • Summary: Just so easy to plug in, switch on and set up. Be clear this is not a NAS but a raid solution that plugs in to a PC. (SATA or USB2/3). That said it's simple to share across a network. Great value.

All drives have to be preformated

J. S. Sohotha "theone", Amazon
17 November 2013
  • Summary: Found that if ANY drive is not formatted than the whole thing will NOT get recognized via USB 3 connection.So ensure you format al drives ( defeats the objective some what ie if you don't have nay other way to load a 3.5 internal HDD then how do you format it !!).
