Bit on a Niche item, but I thought it was cool, and a good price!
It allows you to set up a Raid1 mirror for data protection, using only 1 x 3.5" bay!
You will have to buy 2 x 2.5" drives to go with it. Might be handy if you have a shuttle / SFF PC and you are looking for an elegant way to protect your data, or if you are a big geek like me and think it's "cool!"

You can get free shipping at scan through various methods (search this forum), or add £6.99 for shipping.

2 x 2.5" HDD (SSD*) built on a convenient aluminum mobile rack
Enables 2.5" SATA drives to be fit on a 3.5" standard form factor drive bay (floppy size space) in any desktop, rackmount or IPC
Real EASY & GO
One button backup for all types format
Automatic data rebuilding (raid 1 mode)
Cableless HDD connection
For internal use only

not sure where this fits in, most modern boards will support raid 1 on sata and have seen 2x 2.5" bay adapters for about a fiver.....

This is true, but it wouldn't be as neat. This requires only power and one SATA connection.
I have allways liked having HDD's accessable from the front of a PC too.
Like I said, bit of a Niche item

I don't expect this deal to get hot, but hopefully there is a forum member who would like this !

Lol ! That would be sweet.

Have you seen the samsung SSD RAID video ? have a look on Youtube :thumbsup:

and dammed expensive,,been messing around with solid state kit for a few years now, have one in my htpc very nice 15 sec boot time achieved with some shaving, must say did try two in raid 0 but initialisation of the raid controller bios delayed boot too much.

I have an intel x25M (80GB) in my mediacentre, and I tell you that PC runs better with its DDRII and Phenom 2 cpu than my overclocked i5 with its traditional HDD (Samsung F3) :w00t:

Bit of a leftfield + n00b question, but... would this work with a single-drive NAS? To sort of "retrofit" the single-drive NAS with a RAID capacity?

don't seen any reason why not, though if its an old nas it may only support sata 150 you would need to check if this can support that

Web site says :

Model Name JJ-1225SUSRI
Interface USB 2.0 + SATA
Compatible with USB 1.0 & USB 2.0, SATA-I & SATA-II
Pin 15pin SATA power connector
Performance SATA-II upto 3.0Gbps
SATA-I upto 1.5Gbps

So I think it would work. ( SATA-I & SATA-II) :thumbsup:

Not available anymore (the 'non-RAID' version is still there, available to pre-order at £18.79 inc.VAT). Oh well... maybe a misdescription/incorrect product description by Scan?

pity and can't see it anywhere else either also according to jj webite this supports diff raid specs as well.

Shame. I can't see them for sale anywhere else either.
It was from Scan's clearence section, so they may only have had a couple.
Expiring.

thinking about it after discovering they support raid 0 and raid 1, this may have been an answer to my problem with the raid bios causing the slow down in boot with ssds in striped raid
also came across InstaRAID IR12TB which is on a lot of us websites, more expensive at avg 110usd..
