    Houses up to Five 3.5" SATA I/II/III Hard Disk Drives
    The Xcellon DRD-401 Five-Bay RAID System houses up to four 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.
    Eight RAID Modes Configurable by DIP Switches or Software
    Eight 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, 1, 3, 5, and 10, as well as Normal (JBOD), Span (Big/Large), and Clone modes, to handle striping, mirroring, redundancy, and parity.
    Included 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, eSATA, FireWire 800, and FireWire 400 ports
    The DRD-401 is equipped with five ports for flexible connectivity. USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire 400, and two FireWire 800 ports, plus the included high-speed connection cables, make it easy to connect the DRD-401 to most computers. The dual FireWire 800 ports also enable daisy-chaining with compatible devices.
    Maximum Transfer Rates of up to 5.0 Gbps
    When plugged into your computer's USB 3.0 port, the DRD-401 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-401 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-401 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-401 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 mode 1, 3, 5, or 10 array when you replace the damaged disk with a new one.
    Overcurrent and Short-Circuit Protection
    The DRD-401's circuit design integrates overcurrent and short-circuit protection to help optimize data security and safeguard your drives against damage.
    Intelligent Sleep Mode
    The DRD-401 is programmed with an intelligent sleep mode to save energy and reduce wear and tear on your disk drives. If the data connection cable is unplugged or there's no read/write activity on the installed disk drives for five minutes, the DRD-401 will automatically enter sleep mode and the fan will power down.

  • 4 x NewerTech AdaptaDrive 2.5" to 3.5" Drive Converter Bracket

    The AdaptaDrive 2.5" to 3.5" Drive Converter Bracket from Newer Technology enables you to install a 2.5" hard drive or SSD in a 3.5" SATA drive bay. This bracket features a circuit board bridge adapter that supports SATA III interfaces. By offering a bridge adapter with this bracket, you can easily install a faster 2.5" drive to the backplane tray in Mac Pros. This adapter delivers direct pass through performance so your SATA III drive maintains its 6 Gb/s transfer speed without any slowdown from bottlenecking or performance throttling. For supporting drives with slower SATA speeds, it is also backwards compatible with SATA II and SATA I interfaces. In addition, the aluminum converter bracket features an open design, which allows your cooling system to provide cool air to flow around the drive.
