  • Xcellon DRD-101 Dual-Bay System for 3.5" SATA Hard Disk Drives

    The Xcellon DRD-101 Dual-Bay RAID System is a convenient solution for large-data storage needs. It houses up to two internal-type 3.5" I/II/III SATA hard disk drives, consolidating them in a single enclosure. Two tray-less, front-loading drive bays enable easy access with simple, tool-free installation. Five RAID modes deliver a variety of options when it comes to read/write functions, data storage, and backup, and are configurable via the DIP switches located on the rear of the device or the included software. The software also offers advanced RAID configuration, firmware updates, and event logging.

    The DRD-101 is equipped with eSATA and USB 3.0 ports and comes with the necessary interface cables. Connected to compatible devices, the USB 3.0 port can attain maximum transfer rates of up to 5.0 Gbps.

    Houses up to Two 3.5" SATA I/II/III Hard Disk Drives
    The Xcellon DRD-101 Dual-Bay RAID System houses up to two 3.5" SATA I/II/III hard disk drives, making it a great solution for large-data storage needs. It helps maintain a tidy workstation by consolidating your disks in a single enclosure instead of cluttering your desk with individual external drives.
    Five RAID Modes Configurable by DIP Switches or Software
    Five RAID modes, configurable by the DIP switches on the rear of the enclosure or via the included software, offer a variety of options for managing and backing up your data. Choose from RAID 0 and 1, as well as Normal (JBOD), Span (Big/Large), and Clone modes, to handle striping, mirroring, redundancy, and parity.
    Software for Advanced Operations
    Included software helps you manage your RAID systems and installed hardware. View information about the current RAID mode and the hard disks installed in the enclosure, set multiple RAID modes in an enclosure, view and save event logs, update firmware, and configure RAID settings. The software is available for both Windows and Mac operating systems.
    USB 3.0 and eSATA Ports
    The DRD-101 is equipped with USB 3.0 and eSATA ports and comes with high-speed connection cables, making it easy to connect the enclosure to most computers.
    Maximum Transfer Rates of up to 5.0 Gbps
    When plugged into your computer's USB 3.0 port, the DRD-101 can attain transfer rates of up to 5.0 Gbps via the included USB 3.0 cable.
    Aluminum Construction and Large Quiet Fan
    The DRD-101 employs a dual-element cooling system to prevent overheating when working for long periods of time. The aluminum construction dissipates heat, while a single large fan cools the drives with maximum efficiency and minimum noise.
    Hot Swapping
    The DRD-101 allows hot swapping, so you won't have to shut down your computer every time you install a hard disk.
    Front-Loading, Tray-Less Drive Bays
    Installing your hard disks is easy. Instead of dismantling your computer, just pop the disk drives into the easily accessible, front-loading drive bays. The bays are tray-less, eliminating the need for drive carriers, screwdrivers, or other installation tools. When removing your disks from the enclosure, the bay doors prevent jams by automatically ejecting the disk as you open the door.
    Locking Bay Doors
    As an added security measure, the bay doors lock with the included hex key to prevent them from inadvertently opening.
    LED Status Indicators
    Each drive bay is furnished with a status LED to indicate when the corresponding disk drive is powered or reading and writing.
    Integrated Chipset
    The DRD-101 beeps continuously to let you know if one of your disks is damaged. As an extra security measure for your data backup, an integrated chipset can automatically rebuild your RAID 1 system when you replace the damaged disk with a new one.
    Intelligent Sleep Mode
    The DRD-101 is programmed with an intelligent sleep mode to save energy and reduce wear and tear on your disk drives. If there's no read/write activity on the installed disk drives for five minutes, the DRD-101 will automatically enter sleep mode and the fan will power down.

    General Features

    For Creative Professionals
    When it comes to storing your creativity and digital portfolio, WD Black drives can be used to store large multimedia files that contain photos, videos, games, or applications and programs. With a WD Black drive, you get a combination of speed, capacity, and large cache sizes.
    For Gamers
    WD Black drives are also well-suited for gaming machines by offering large capacities to store a game's downloadable content (DLC) and large cache sizes, as well as helping to further maximize system performance when paired with an SSD. WD Black drives also include StableTrac technology for more accurate data tracking and to help reduce any impact due to vibrations for additional gaming hardware.
    Increased Reliability
    This WD Black drive is equipped with StableTrack technology by securing the motor shaft inside to increase stability and help reduce impact due to system-induced vibrations from other components. By stabilizing the platters inside, the drive is more accurate in tracking particular sectors during read and write operations, optimizing performance and reliability.
    Increased DRAM Cache
    This WD Black drive delivers high transfer speeds and read rates of your files with a 64MB DRAM cache. WD's Dynamic Cache technology improves caching algorithms in real time to allocate and optimize the cache between reads and writes. This movement of cache for read data helps to reduce congestion and increase overall performance.
    Dual Processing
    When it comes to processing power, more is always better, especially for loading games and large multimedia files. This WD Black drive features a dual-core processor that offers increased processing capabilities as compared to a single-core processor, helping to maximize drive performance for faster read and write speeds.
