question

Is there a fan in the unit? Also is it usb 3.1 Gen 1 (5 gb/s) or usb 3.1 Gen 2 (10 gb/s)?

As the title says:CineRAID CR-H218 2-Bay USB 3.1 Gen 2 ...CineRAID CR-H218 2-Bay USB 3.1 Gen TWO ...it is FAST, but not faster that what it is connected to is capable of taking.I get 700-800 on a stock Best of class MBPro and 910+ on an over clocked refrigerant cooled tower with a 12 core both doing contiguous transfers with a clocked bus and higher with TB3 1/2Meter cable and extreme clocking, you're mileage may vary.
