The 8TB (4x2TB) Mercury Elite Pro Qx2 Quad Interface 4-Bay RAID Solution B&H Kit offers a convenient enclosure, which affords installation of your own set of four matched 3.5" Serial ATA (SATA I/II) hard disk drives into a stylish RAID enclosure that supports data transfers up to 3.0Gb/s. The Qx2 is equipped with a custom Oxford 936 Chipset that's compatible with eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0/1.1 connectivity. The single eSATA port offers the fastest data transfer rates, up to 3.0Gb/s or 300MB/s. The dual 9-pin FireWire 800 ports facilitate 800Mbps or 100MB/s transfer rates, while the 6-pin FireWire 400 interface supports transfer rates up to 400Mbps or 50MB/s. The USB 2.0 port, which is also backwards compatible with USB 1.1, supports up to 480Mbps or 60MB/s transfer rates, as well as 12Mbps or 1.5MB/s USB 1.1 transfer rates. Supporting four different interfaces ensures that you'll achieve the fastest data transfers possible on your PC or Mac. Plus, by offering a USB 2.0/1.1 port, eSATA port, dual FireWire 800 ports and a FireWire 400 port, all your interface needs are covered and as an added measure of convenience, all supported interface connector cables are included.

Besides offering quad connectivity, the Qx2 also supports user selectable Hardware RAID settings. With the help of a front panel selector switch, the Qx2 enables easy configuration of NRAID, RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID 10. This allows you to select the best combination of speed, capacity, redundancy or any combination of all three. NRAID (Span) combines capacity of two or more drives of equal size into one volume, as well as combining the capacity of varying size drives based on the lowest capacity in the set. RAID 0 (Stripe) means that data is split into blocks over two or more drives at the same time for high-speed and large capacity. RAID 1 (Mirror) allows data to be written at the same time to two drives for the highest level of data safety and redundancy. RAID 5 (Stripe with Parity) is similar to RAID 0; data is striped while incorporating redundancy over three or more drives for the best combo of speed, capacity and redundancy. Like other quad interface, 4-bay RAID solutions, the Qx2 is pre-configured as RAID 5. Finally, RAID 10 ensures that data is striped over two mirrored sets of drives for fast redundancy.
