Mighty fast box!

Bought this one just last week. It was the only one with JMicron 567 which has a 6Gbit eSATA bus. Performance difference between USB3 and and eSATA is negligeable. In contrast to the earlier model I bought, this one has proper hard drive cooling. It works seamlessley with Linux and Windows. Only issues I had: -Linux recognises drives in different order from numbering on enclosure. So I stuck a label with correct numbering on. -Allthough the trays have light-carriers alongside to cater for individual drive status leds, no leds are mounted in the backplane. So the only indicator are the drive activity leds on the front panel.
