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 speed and data redundancy, 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.

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. Four 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.

Four RAID Modes Configurable by DIP Switches or Software

Four 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.

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.

Allows you to use your 2.5" hard drive or SSD in 3.5" drive bay-equipped desktop Mac, PC, or external enclosure
Standard 3.5" drive screw mounting locations
Install any 2.5" drive in a 3.5" SATA drive bay (including backplane trays found in the Mac Pro)
