Review 2 for StarTech 3.5" 4-Drive eSATA USB FireWire External SATA RAID Enclosure

Works like a CHAMP!

The device if very easy to setup. The instructions were clear and easy. The lights on the front a bit overwhelming at first glance, but once you actually look to see what they do, it is easy to understand. However, they are a bit too small in some cases to see what function they are referring.
As for the functionality, it seems to work well. I ran into an issue with the box hanging and the computer not being able to backup to the device, however this was due to a bad drive. That said, since I have it set up for RAID 5, it should have just kept going, so I'm not sure what that was about.
I pulled the drive and reformatted it separately and then put it back into the box. The box then went about rebuilding the RAID set, but since the drive was having a problem, it still shows that it needs to be replaced. However, now it is no longer hanging.
Overall, I'm very happy with it, especially at this price point!
