Description
NT2 U31C
Designed to house two 3.5” SATA drives, this compact RAID storage enclosure makes it easy to either increase your storage capacity, backup your data or create a high-performance storage volume for video editing. The USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface assures super-fast transfer rates of up to 10Gbps and with the USB-C connector, the NT2 U31C is compatible with USB 3.1 as well as Thunderbolt 3 computers.

Features
Configurable hardware RAID controller (Non-RAID, RAID 0, RAID 1, SPAN) SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) interface Compatible with Thunderbolt 3 and USB Type-C computers Supports Universal Attached SCSI Protocol (UASP) Backwards compatible with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 Extremely compact dual-bay design for two 3.5" drives Active cooling fan Security lock slot
SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2)
By incorporating the latest SuperSpeed USB 10Gbps (USB 3.1 Gen 2) technology, the NT2 U31C is able to deliver up to twice the speed of the USB 3.1 Gen 1 and the older USB 3.0 devices. The USB-C connection is compatible with both USB 3.1 and Thunderbolt 3 computers. At the same time, when using the included USB-C to USB Type A adapter cable, the device is still backwards compatible with the widely used USB 3.0 and even USB 2.0 technology.

Compact Dual-Bay Design
This dual-bay storage enclosure is designed to house up to two 3.5-inch SATA drives with the option to create a RAID set according to your own preferences. The small footprint makes this the ideal storage expansion for your crowded desktop.

Hardware RAID Controller
Utilizing the built-in hardware RAID controller, you can mirror the drives as a reliable backup for your important data, stripe the drives for optimal disk speeds or you can combine the drives for a large storage volume. Setting it to Non-RAID, the drives can be seen and managed as two individual disks.

Benchmark
Results will vary depending on the test environment and the drives but in order to really experience the faster transfer rates of the USB 3.1 Gen 2 interface at speeds of up to 10Gbps, it's necessary to install two SSDs and create a striped RAID set.

For traditional 3.5" hard disk drives, the transfer rate is limited by the disk itself. Depending on the RPM, the maximum disk speed is around 100-200 MB/s. Even when using RAID 0, the transfer rate is limited by the disk speed to around 400 MB/s, no matter if the device is connected to a USB 3.0 computer at 5Gbps or a USB 3.1 Gen 2 computer at 10Gbps.

Even though the NT2 U31C storage enclosure is not designed for the smaller 2.5" drives, it's still possible to install and use SSDs with a 2.5" to 3.5" drive adapter like the Neutrino Bridge for example.

When the device is connected to a USB 3.0 computer at 5Gbps, the transfer rate is limited by the USB interface to around 400 MB/s. When it's connected to a USB 3.1 Gen 2 computer or a Thunderbolt 3 computer, the SSDs can run at full SATA 6Gb/s speed and deliver around 500 MB/s or around 800-900 MB/s when striped in a RAID 0 set.

AKiTiO 2-Bay USB3.1 Gen2 Desktop Case NT2 U31C NT2C U31AA reviews


18/08/2018 | Ilya K | RU Flag |
Hi! Hi! Just so you know. I have received answers from Akito on questions that I have written to you before. 1. If both disks in RAID 1 work properly and I just take out one disk from RAID 1 and plug it to another computer, will I have access to the data? - No, the drives must stay in our enclosure because it was set-up as a RAID with our enclosure's RAID chip. Moving the drives to a different housing will result in possible data loss and corruption. 2. If one disk in RAID 1 is defective, will I have access to data from NT2 U31C? Or I will have access only after replacing the faulty disk? - You will still have access to the data, but speeds may be low. 3. If one disk in RAID 1 is defective, will I have access to data if I plug only the healthy disk (in another enclosure) to another computer? - Just like answer 1, you cannot move the drives to a different housing. 4. If one disk in RAID 1 is defective and I want to replace the faulty drive, could I use not the same type of disk, but only the same capacity? - It is recommended that you use the same exact model and capacity, but using a drive with the same exact capacity will work as well. And one more: If I don't have access to the data when the remove the disk from the enclosure, how can I get access to the data If enclosure breaks and I don't have ability to buy new the same enclosure? What will I have to do to get access to the data? - Unfortunately, you will have to somehow get the same enclosure. Taking all these answers and especially considering the fact that I will lose all data if the enclosure breaks, I came to the conclusion not to buy this enclosure. Can you advise please an inexpensive enclosure without such problems, but with a similar specification?


All raided system will have this issue - the Raid is specific to the controller/unit. If you are worried about data loss you will need a back up.
