The Taurus Super-S3 LCM External Hard Drive Enclosure from Akitio accepts two 3.5" SATA hard drives up to 4TB in capacity and can be used with Windows or Mac computers. The drives can be hardware configured via the enclosure in a RAID 0 or 1 array. Configuring the hard drives in RAID 0 will offer the best performance while RAID 1 offers redundancy to prevent data loss. This drive features one eSATA port, one USB 3.0 port, two FireWire 800 ports and one FireWire 400 port.
