I got this hoping to get a nice multi-drive external solution using Thunderbolt. Well, it connects with Thunderbolt, but also needs an eSATA connection as well, (and I'm not sure why), so I'm not sure I'm getting the full Thunderbolt performance I should be getting. Also, the manufacturer sells direct, including a model that has two Thunderbolt ports, which is helpful to add another device to the chain. This one doesn't have that extra port, so unless your computer has more than one, this really limits your options. Had I been aware of these two limitations, I probably would have looked elsewhere. It's a shame, because otherwise, this has been a nice unit. It's been completely reliable and I've had not drive or RAID issues running it. But in my single-Thunderbolt, no-eSATA environment, I had to use the LaCie Thunderbolt-eSATA adaptor just to connect it and I cannot connect anything else.

Like the box. Quick to setup. Relatively quiet considering the dual fans per drive which should preserve drive life. Also like the fact that you can set the drive spin down time to allow them likewise to rest.

I talked with the manufacturer, while there is no indication of it in the software or documentation, when using 5 drives in Raid 10 configuration the 5th drive is automatically used as a hot spare, nice!

While I do not like the software, although it does work.

Would have liked something a little more aesthetically pleasing for complimenting Mac products, but functionally it is a good unit.

This very solidly built somewhat large raid array is fast, reliable, and rugged. As opposed to several "trayless" devices, this device requires no screws. Initial setup is fast with quick identification of faulty drives. It is truly a hardware self enclosed RAID. I have swapped this drive between USB 3.0, eSata, and thunderbolt. RAID was stable across all three connections. I will likely buy a second unit due to reliability and speed.

After using it for 1 year - I WOULD NEVER BUY THIS IF I HAD IT TO DO OVER
BUYERS BE WARNED!!!

If you are buying this as a RAID on a MacPro, DON"T DO IT. Spend the money to buy something (ANYTHING) else. Any power outage crashes the RAID to an irretrievable situation. Their software does not work with Mavericks and you cannot even use as a JBOD without the same problem. In short, this is a useless box that is unreliable. By contrast I have a two disk LACIE RAID and have never had a single problem. I have had to reformat and reload this drive 7 times in about a year. Needless to say, if I didn't have lots of backups and place no confidence in this drive I would have lost everything on this drive. Most exciting is the fact that there is no way to shut down the RAID in an orderly fashion (Small problem). Instructions are useless. Caused repeated crashes on Mavericks. When you see DATOPTIC, you should envision a plague upon your house for buying their products.

It is now trash in about 1 year. BUY NOTHING FROM DATOPTIC!!!!! Anything else is better.

I had been researching a RAID system to use for my business needs for two months. I had looked at the Pegasus systems, Western Digital, Lacie and an Areca unit. I didn't even bother with Drobo or a NAS system, as my needs are for a high speed system that works with my software [Lightroom doesn't really like NAS systems].

The Pegasus units, while nice, had a sub-par warranty and even after contacting the manufacturer direct I could still not find out if the drives that came with the unit were consumer or enterprise level. Add to that, I know a number of colleagues who have had issues getting the Pegasus units to work smoothly with their Macs, I was not keen on this product.

The WD and Lacie units were plenty capable on speed and size, however minimal control and I was looking for a system with more than just RAID 0 or 1 setups.

The Areca 8-bay unit is impressive, however I didn't need that much storage, and couldn't justify the price over the DAToptic unit based solely on that. DAToptic also has a 12-bay system if you really desire large storage.

After purchasing the unit, it arrived to me extremely well packed, and included the following:
- cd with software
- eSATA to eSATA cable [to be used to daisy chain in order to make thunderbolt use feasible]
- eSATA to eSATA cable
- eSATA to USB3.0 adapter [sweet!]
- 3 foot Thunderbolt to Thunderbolt cable
- tray lock keys
- AC power cable
- eSATA PCI bracket

After installing drives I had purchased, the unit was quickly recognized by my Mac, simply setup the RAID system I needed, then formatted the entire drive to be readable by the Mac.

During initialization I had a few questions, and just so happened that DAToptic had live chat support available.

I added the eBOX_TeSU (along w/ eSATA card) to my original Mac Pro. Performance is good - I haven't run tests but if anything I/O is faster than the (SATA II) internal raid in my aging Pro [drives in eBOX are SATA III & eSATA card is SATA III, so possible it is faster, but I'm not sure whether there is a slower bottleneck internal to the Pro].

Since new Mac Pro dropped internal RAID, and I don't need *that* much compute power, my plan is to replace my Pro w/ a Mac Mini [hoping the next Mini will be able to drive 4K at 60Hz w/ HDMI 2.0 support]. I mirror everything and skimp on backups (i prefer just to copy a whole drive than fiddle w/ backup/restore) so external RAID is a must. Plus it makes migration to a new machine pretty trivial.

The eBOX looks great on paper, and it lives up to that for the most part - once you figure it out. It comes with little instruction - I got tripped up a few minutes just figuring out that closing the drive door was required to insert the drive fully. Slick mechanism once you realize how it works - but a clue of some sort would have helped. Next up was installing the management s/w - which turns out to require dragging a app folder (not just the app) into your applications folder - otherwise you get a cryptic error (like "error 12345"). I did get a mirrored volume up and running from the front panel even before sorting out software install - very easy to figure out. A little improvement to "getting started" documentation would sort out these little issues. Nothing that would stop me recommending the product - and customer support was very good (on chat and e-mail).

There is one downside for me that might not apply to you.
