I've been eyeing this nifty 5-hdd storage unit for a while and just noticed it's been reduced from £185 to £166.47! Some people may enjoy around £20 off with Amazon free delivery so have fun filling up those TBs!!
The DAS501t is a 5-bay storage enclosure for high capacity needs. Hard Drives are installed into easy access hard drive trays for simple insertion and removal. The DAS501t is a compact RAID tower that uses only one cable to access five SATA hard drives utilising the latest SATA II multiplier technology.
* Supplied with 2-port eSATA PCIe card
* Quiet Operation
* RAID levels 0, 1, 5 & 10
* Combine Mode to Maximize Capacity
* Removable Hard Drive Trays
Using the bundled 2-port eSATA PCI express adapter, the user can easily access five hard drives via JBOD mode or RAID 0, 1, 1+0 and 5 with spare.
It basically acts as one large external hard-drive while allowing you to slot in 5 SATA drives and can be recognized as each drive individually or all together as one large drive.
Best deal for a 5-slotter, most 2-4 slot ones are way pricier than this alone! Enjoy!
