General Performance

The ARC-8042-12 same as the ARC-9212JD-TR2 and the ARC-8050T3-6M is made by Areca. There always other brands out there like Areca which are often innovative. You might not get the same user experience comparing with other better known brands. But sometimes you might not need it. Unlike the ARC-9212JD-TR2 and the ARC-8050T3-6M this box has the RAID-on-Chip (ROC) 1.2 GHz processor. The ARC-8042-12 RAM compared with ARC-8050T3-6M 2GB is clearly weaker.

About Connections

There are four SAS ports on this ARC-8042-12 box. When we are talking SAS, we talk FAST. You are either serious video editor or graphic designer, and there is no place for lagging transfer speeds.

About Usage

As there are no LAN ports, you probably know this is DAS (directly attached storage) box. Sometimes more than anything we need speed! If you have chosen right drives for your ARC-8042-12 box, you can expect the best performance whilst you are editing your videos or working with graphics. Only disadvantage with DAS boxes, is data sharing capabilities, compared with NAS functionality.

Price And Warranty

This box comes with 3 year warranty for your peace of mind and long term hardware security. This Areca is £606.00 cheaper than the most expensive unit ARC-9212JD-TR2.
