The SAT3540ER2 External RAID Multi Bay Hard Drive Enclosure/Mobile Rack delivers a high performance storage solution that lets you install up to four 3.5in SATA hard drives (including SATA, SATA II and SATA III-6Gbps) for connection to a host computer through eSATA.

The 4-drive mobile rack supports JBOD and standard RAID modes (RAID 0, 1, 10 (1+0)), in addition to RAID 5, Spanning/Concatenation, and Cloning (RAID 1 + Hot Spare); the cloning mode enables a drive to be removed for off-site storage, without interrupting data accessibility.

To ensure a safe, sturdy operating environment for installed HDDs, it features a built-in 80mm ball bearing fan to enhance hard drive cooling, and offers a high quality aluminum body and attractive front panel design.

An out-of-the box external RAID solution, the storage appliance includes a companion PCI Express SATA controller card (with port multiplier support), as well as an eSATA cable and the necessary power adapter.

The StarTech.com Advantage
  • Built-in support for numerous RAID modes for most personal/business needs and an 80mm controllable cooling fan to keep drives from overheating
  • Support for up to 4 drives provide large amounts of storage over a high speed eSATA connection
  • Included PCIe-based eSATA card ensures you have the right hardware to fully utilize the enclosure out of the box
