Categories > RAID Enclosure / Subsystems > SANS DIGITAL > Sans Digital 4-Bay USB 3.0 / eSATA Hardware RAID5 Tower Storage Enclosure w/ 6G PCIe 2.0 HBA Card TR4UT+B (Black)

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Stay away!
Pros: Easy setup, fast disk access.
Cons: NO RECOVERY OPTIONS!
Other Thoughts: The array is plenty fast and easy to set up. BUT. I have 4 Seagate 3TB drives in a RAID 5 config, and I have one drive that's probably failing. But not failed enough that the array is indicating there's an error. The symptoms are the array stops responding for periods, the disk lights flash in weird patterns, and now some content is inaccessible.

The Sans Digital Hardware RAID tool doesn't give any ability to control the array, and they say that's it's all controlled by the hardware in the box. But since the Event Log shows no error, I can't determine which drive is failing.

I called Sans Digital, and their response was to remove all the drives from the box and connect them one at a time directly to the computer. Then I'm to run Segate's SeaTools software against the drive to see if it's failing.

This is a horrific solution. Their old software RAID boxes could verify and rebuild the array from commands from the web interface. It also had logs that would show the number of bad sectors. This hardware RAID solution, although faster than the software RAID, provides NO recovery options at all.

STAY AWAY from this!

Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3Rating + 3 CineRAID CR-H232
Pros: Price. Works well as external hard drive reader (2 3.5 drives).
Cons: Would not work to clone 2.5 HHD to SSD. Would start and hang up.
Other Thoughts: For the price, it works well as backup drive.

Categories > RAID Enclosure / Subsystems > SANS DIGITAL > SANS DIGITAL TR4UTBPN 4Bay USB 3.0 / eSATA Hardware RAID 5 Tower RAID Enclosure (no eSATA card bundled)

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 SANS DIGITAL TR4UTBPN
Pros: SANS DIGITAL Tech support only took one week to get back to me! :-(
Cons: SANS DIGITAL TR4UTBPN was purchased to replace a failed unit. The new one failed within 3 months. NewEgg won't warranty.
Other Thoughts: To have two new units fail within 1 year and 3 months respectively is unacceptable. Next time I will spend more money with a better company who takes care of both their products and customers. This goes for NewEgg for their skimpy 30 day return policy and SANS DIGITAL for making shoddy goods they won't warranty.

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 FAIL #2 by SANS DIGITAL TR4UTBPN
Pros: Works fine when it works.
Cons: I bought this unit to replace the one I had that failed within a year because I was told from SANS DIGITAL tech support it would cost half the price of the unit to fix it. So, I bought a new one which failed in three months.
Other Thoughts: Pretty cheap stuff to have two of them fail within a year. Next time I will spend a little more money with a company that takes better care of its products and customers.

Pros: sounded real promising
Cons: not with this item
Other Thoughts: Sounded real good. but I have 7 external hd and not one would fit inside. Removed an internal notebook (about a year old) and it would not fit inside the inclosure. I was real disappointed and feel the item really SUCKED

Categories > RAID Enclosure / Subsystems > SANS DIGITAL > SANS DIGITAL TowerRAID TR4M-B - 4 Bay SATA to eSATA (Port Multiplier) JBOD / RAID 0, 1, 1+0, 5 Enclosure

Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1Rating + 1 Scrap
Pros: For a moment a Raid 1 worked great between two pairs of drives until the eSATA cable was bumped. I started moving files by hand and that seemed to work well for a while until drives started disappearing. Never in the 5 years this computer has existed has there been an issue with an internal drive or single drives in enclosures. But this tower seems to be a mess.
Cons: This device has slowly corroded 4 of my drives. Hard drives in this tower repeatedly show up with errors upon start up of windows 7. Two of them can no longer be found and read as RAW. It is catastrophic.
Other Thoughts: The drives that have been showing issues are a little over a year old. 2 WD Red 2TB Drives and 2 Samsung 1TB Drives. Folders just evaporate into nothingness with a single click. I have since removed them from the tower and have started moving files via SATA. What a mess...

Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5Rating + 5 SOLID UNIT
Pros: Solid Unit. Excellent build quality and value for the price. If you want a longer cable, buy one. The provided cable is more than long enough to seat the unit on top of the chassis without having excessive slack. Easy Plug and Play (Windows 7). Extremely quiet. Ran standard hard drives and SSDs, easy. Has a VERY useful manual power switch (toggle) on the back. Various color indicator LEDs clearly communicate status. Clone feature works well. For more control I ran Acronis between the two inserted drives. Fast.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Wait for sale. Get a rebate. Paid about $22 all toll.

Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2Rating + 2 Pretty poor
Pros: None really.
Cons: It is a USB/eSATA box...and a poor one at that.

Dropping connections, losing Data, NEVER has formatted Raid correctly.....I gave it to a friend instead of being told, again, that it is my cables-power supply-drives...

SO sick of companies not backing up their trash products. Avoid this brick at all costs!
