Oyen Digital 3R5-EB3-M overview

  • 1Description

The Mobius 5-Bay FireWire 800/eSATA/USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure from Oyen Digital is a powerful RAID storage management device with flexible connectivity and easy HDD access. It offers flexible RAID storage management options including RAID 0 (striping), RAID 1 (mirroring), RAID 10, RAID 3, RAID 5, JBOD (five independent disks) and Combine (span). The LED indicators provide easy verification of operating status and drive health/activity. The tray-less design provides a simple way of HDD removal and installation by simply pulling the handle to insert or withdraw the HDDs.

Airflow is maximized due to the high quality, quiet fans that exhaust air away from the internal HDDs, enhancing internal airflow. The thermally efficient aluminum also maintains optimal HDD operating temperature, prolonging the life of the HDDs. Furthermore, the enclosure features powerful storage management. You can simply insert HDDs,set the RAID mode via the mode switch, connect the cables, and turn on the power for massive storage capacity, redundancy or instant real-time backups.

Note:Only enterprise-level drives should be used in this unit. Consumer-level drives may inhibit performance.

    Oyen Digital 3R5-EB3-M reviews

    Mobius 5-Bay FireWire 800/eSATA/USB 3.0 RAID Enclosure is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 23.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems very reliable After struggling with a Sans Digital Array (and the RocketRAID card it came with) for a couple months, I gave up on it and tried this instead. I'm glad I did. We now have 9 of these in-house, and more likely to come. We've used 1 TB and 4 TB WD HDD's enterprise in them, and haven't really had any issues (via eSATA) in the 8 months or so since we started using the first unit. In my experience, though, USB 3.0 does not work nearly as well as eSATA. One tip - use the Sonnet Tech Tempo Pro eSATA cards recommended by Oyen. The 2-port cards are inexpensive ($$), and we get 150 MB/sec write and 200 MB/sec read with the combo (Oyen + Sonnet Tech).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, great support Exactly what I was looking for, and at a good price. Works great. I bought two for redundancy as I run a video production company. We keep one on-site and one off site.Only word of caution is: they're not kidding about consumer-grade hard drives. Don't use them! Make sure you get NAS rated drives for them. I first bought some cheaper WD drives and the system pretty much failed. Hard lesson learned - took me a long time to recover. Swapped out with proper NAS drives and haven't had a single issue. Also, customer service is great and based out of Minnesota here in the good ole US of A

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hidden gem for cheap RAID enclosure Been running ours for two years continous. About to buy another. We run it SATA, Raid 5 with 4TB Hitachi Enterprise drives. It's very quiet compared to a lot of units I've tried. It is insanely simple to set up, using toggle switches to set the RAID level. Pretty insane, but it works. No web interface, or drive health/status that I know of, but you're not paying for those features. If you need a cheap option that works, this is the one. Hope the product sticks around a while.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from If it only worked Usb3 interoperability is abysmal. Have tested this on two systems. Works on some ports marginally and not on others with a known good usb3 cable. With the usb3 cable provided with the unit it doesn't work at all. I have tried this on two computers. I have other usb3 devices that work perfectly at speed and reliably. Manufacture is aware of a known issue where the device will fail and disconnect. See email below from Oyen Oyen Digital RMA Dept We are continuing to test your unit (with the original cable). However, it has been brought to my attention that there is a known issue related to the Mobius disconnecting randomly with USB 3.0. It appears to be an intermittent issue, only reacting this way with certain equipment. Our Tech department is working with the manufacturer to develop a firmware update designed to resolve this. While they do not have any specific date when this update will be ready, they are anticipating to have something within the next two weeks. We can ship you a new replacement unit, and you can then download this update when it becomes available. Or, we can ship you a new replacement unit with the update already installed after it becomes available. If you prefer, we can also issue a refund. Please let us know your preference. We apologize for any inconvenience. I purchased a PassMark USB3 test Plug and double check the ports on my computers. They passed all the usb3 test and burn tests. Seems to be a problem with the mobius Usb Phy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good enough so I bought an second one. All good.If you need it, buy it.The first one ran 24 hours a day for 2 1/2 years before the power supply failed- and probably because I moved the studio and jostled it too much. Bought the second one after speaking to Oyen directly, popped in the drives to the new cabinet (in the same order, of course) powered it up, and my RAID was back online. I'm having the first one repaired; it'll go straight back in to service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solid, fast and quiet I purchased the Oyen Mobius 5-Bay case a little over a year and a half ago and use it nightly for backup. I've had no problems with it running continuously since installation If you don't need NAS storage or tons of bells and whistles, this enclosure is at a good price point and seems like a quality product. It's made of aluminum, which dissipates heat well. I've populated it with five Seagate 4TB NAS SATA III drives configured as RAID 5, providing an excellent balance of speed and fault tolerance. In RAID 5, you lose one drive worth of usable storage in order to store parity information so that the RAID array will rebuild without any loss of data should any of the drives be replaced. Even configured with RAID 5 fault tolerance, data is written/read simultaneously to ALL FIVE drives, so disk access is still *very* fast. I backup nightly using Acronis Backup 11.5 and have had no issues. I also backup a couple of other PCs to this device through Windows networking (as a network share) and it works well. It's an economical alternative to a NAS storage device. I let it run 24/7 and it remains cool and quiet. No problems in almost two years. The drive does support letting the OS put it into sleep mode and waking when accessed. The product comes with a two-year warranty from Oyen. You can reach them by phone for support, and if needed, fill out an RMA request on their website for service - so save your receipt! If you're planning on using drives larger than 4TB, you should call Oyen to verify that the drives and sizes are supported. I definitely recommend it and would purchase it again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to Setup & Quiet This was so easy to setup and has worked excellent for the 2 months I've been using it. Built like a tank also! I put five 4TB WD Red drives in it. I set it up as Raid 5 using 4 drives for backup and one drive as a hot spare. For me using it to store my photography this setup works great. If a drive goes bad it will automatically switch to the hot spare. I also leave my Mac running pretty much 24/7. The Mobius goes to sleep and wakes up with the Mac without a hitch! I have it sitting about 2 feet away from my workstation and hardly ever notice that it's running, I barely hear the fan. The build quality and setup documentation are top notch! I use Carbon Copy Cloner on my Mac for backup and setup a task with CCC to automatically backup my work for the day to the Mobius RAID drives. I also have two other large drives that I backup my new work to weekly. After backing up to those I take them to the bank and put them in my lockbox and bring home the two that were in the lockbox for the next backup. When those drives approach full I permanently retire them to the lockbox and start the process again with two new drives. This way I feel secure incase of theft or fire that all my work past & present are securely saved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly We bought this two years ago and have been using it for our archive drive. Presently we have 3 - 4TB WD Red PRO HDD's in it working in a RAID 5 setup so we have a bit of a fail safe. The speed is more than adequate for an archive drive, we're getting full functionality of the drives, and we've had no issues with any of the ports. When the firmware update came out a year (or so) ago, the product was finally able to be set to not go to sleep (which had been a problem) but there is a time-setup for setting the device to go to sleep if it's not used within x-hours. My intentions are to buy one of these for my home, it's extremely cost effective and my own professional photography could benefit from such a condensed system to contain all of my data. The software is semi-archaic, but if I can sort it out anyone can.
