Mark, UK

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very good build quality. Good enough price. Nice kit.
Bad points:
Initial setup is not very clear. Needs a reset to get it to spin up the disks. Cant change the Raid for other disks and then swap back.

TX, Professional techie, lecturer, nerd.

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's ok. Not great, but ok. For the price, it's solved what I needed it to solve. It currently has 3x 1TB HDDs in RAID 5, giving me about 2TB of storage with the security of parity. Yay. However.... (read the bad points)
Bad points:
It's had a hard time recognizing 4 drives in RAID 5 via eSATA. I've been in contact with StarTech support and their emails are understandable, and they're not copying/pasting from a script as far as I can see, so credit there. I haven't tried it in USB3 because I don't have USB3.
I agree with everyone else - the front door feels cheap and is easily accidentally opened with a gentle nudge, but overall the build quality is good, it's quiet and it does the job. For the price, brilliant, but not perfect, because it's doing what I want it to, but not as well as I wanted it to.
