Pros

Cheap and effective, perfect media storage for nighthawk r7000 media server
Cons
80 mm Fan got REAL noisy when the bearing packed it in 4 months in
Summary
Picked this up with 3 x 3tb WD red for a 9 TB JBOD setup with my nighthawk r7000 router to use as a media server, works great, easy to setup, and streams 720 to our Chromecasts and my kids tablets with no issues through the nighthawks' USB 3 connection. The only issue, and what prompted me to write the review, is that the fan bearing packed it in last night, spinning loud and waking me up.. I'm going to take it apart and install a new 80mm fan, cause I don't want to warranty it and be without for a month or more.. Would definitely buy again, with the caveat that i'd install a higher quality fan before putting it into service instead of when the original blows out :)

Pros

Excellent Raid or multiple single drive unit
excellent usb 3.0 speeds
inexpensive in comparison to other raid units
quiet
faster then a NAS
Cons
Larger then media sonic toaster size raid
not a NAS
Summary
I've been shopping for Raid units ever since I could remember. The problem with every Raid is the possibility of failure; failure of the hard drives, failure of the raid unit. Granted that is why we choose a Raid that has redundancy which allows us to replace a hard drive with another with no loss in data. However the problem of a unit failure causes all the data to be lost since we cannot simply mount the drives in your computer to extract the data unless you decide to use mirror in which case the format of the hard drive can be removed and mounted on any PC and read instantaneously. Hence I bought two of these units thinking that if the unit fails, I can recover the data by moving the raid 5 formatted hard drives over to the backup unit and voila... instant readability.

Currently I have four 2TB drives mounted in one unit and formatted as a raid 5 giving me 8TB with 6TB usable.

I then mounted 4 single drives in the other unit and by using the USB 3 connection, I was able to access all 4 single drives individually. I do not have a multipart esata connector and even as a single raid 5 unit, the esata port did not show up as a single drive so I'm not sure whether my new Shuttle would support esata with >2TB drive.

With both Vantec Units connected on 2 usb 3.0 ports, I proceeded to fill my raid 5 unit with the backup data from the individual single drives from the other unit.

I managed to get transfer speeds up to 100MB/s depending on the size of the files. With smaller files, my transfer speed dropped down to 20MB/s

I am very happy with this cheap Raid enclosure as it offers the ability to use it as a raid unit or as a cheap enclosure for 4 single drives. As time progresses, I am hoping to fill the other Vantec unit with 4TB drives giving me 16TB raid 5.

For the price of the unit, it is an excellent way to get raid.
