CRU-DataPort RTX220-3QR overview

  • 1Description

The RTX220-3QR 2-Bay RAID Enclosure from CRU-DataPort is designed for backup and external storage requirements for workgroups of all kinds, as well as SMB and home office environments. With its USB 3.0 (5 Gb/s), eSATA (3 Gb/s), and dual FireWire 800 (800 Mb/s) connectivity options, as well as its dual 3.5" SATA II 3 Gb/s drive bays, the RTX220-3QR provides fast backup or external storage for many kinds of applications. You have a choice of setting up the RTX220-3QR via its hardware controller as a RAID 1, where data is automatically mirrored and simultaneously written to both drives, or as a RAID 0 to create a speedy solution that incorporates both drives into a single storage volume.

The RTX220-3QR can be configured via its easy-to-use interface on the device itself, or through a host computer and CRU's configuration software. In addition to setting the RAID level, you can customize the settings for visual and audible temperature alarms, including what temperature triggers the alarms, and when to turn the 60mm exhaust fan on.

This RAID operates using 100-240 VAC and is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. It includes a USB 3.0 Type-B to Type-A cable, a FireWire 800 cable, an eSATA cable, a power cable, and keys for the lockable bay doors. Protection is provided by a limited 3-year warranty.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would purchase this product again I am using this product to store and back-up my photos and videos. It was easy to install and I was able to contact CRU for any questions I had. The tech support dept at CRU is fabulous.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I would have bought this sooner!!! I don't review many products that I purchase, but this device is very special. Initially I was a bit put off be the steep price of a CRU enclosure compared to others brands, however I received it there was no question I had made the right decision. There are a number of other decentenclosures out there that may work okay for a relatively short period of time, but those enclosure is built like a tank - extremely sturdy with extraordinary attention to detail and a very simple configuration panel all serve to make this a device that I will rely on for many years to come. The other, less expensive enclosures are so light weight that if they fail you can just toss them and get a new enclosure, but the CRU will be around for a long time - and with very few moving parts, any repair work should be inexpensive enough to have done and then resume using the device. I do have one less expensive box that I can pop my drives into to use during any repair to my CRU, but honestly, I don't expect to use it very often. I've had a lot of the big brand name devices both as DAS and NAS systems, but CRU is THE BEST built drive that I have EVER personally used. And as an added bonus, they don't use any kind of proprietary encryption on your data forcing you to is another one of their devices or pay a recovery service a HUGE sum to decrypt your data! (Can't say that for WD) The price is definitely a littl hard to swallow, but if you look at it as a long term investment, I truly believe it will be LESS expensive than cheaper models if you look at cost/operating hours.
