Product Description

A fast flexible high-capacity RAID 4-bay HDD drive

This 4-bay RAID drive meets your ever-expanding storage needs. It supports an Intelligent RAID function: RAID 0, RAID 3, RAID 5, and RAID 10. Removable HDD trays support hot-plug replacement of drives (only for RAID 3, 5, 10). HDD intelligent sleep function is supported. The LCM display and buttons support the convenient setting of RAID modes and status display. The optional password allows the locking of RAID settings. The cooling fan maintains a safe operating temperature. Skidproof and shockproof rubber feet mats ensure safe operation.

The CipherShield encryption model features single-factor authentication with a single key, the key must remain plugged in while powered on to remain authenticated.
