AKiTiO 4-Bay SATA -to- Thunderbolt2 Thunder2 Quad TBQ TIAA AKTU reviews


09/07/2015 | | GB Flag |
Having extensively researched options for Thunderbolt 2 external storage for my MacBook Pro laptop, I finally decided on this. Caldigit and Pegasus offer great hardware raid options, but they're much more expensive. Plus I'm switching from an old MacPro tower so had four HDDs I wanted to use. Most of the hardware raid options have drives included. It's incredibly easy to set up, if you're used to plug and play hard drives. I'm running two pairs of different raid setups in the same box. A raid 0 for speed and a raid 1 for security. The raid 0 is running at about 200MB per second read/write. Although you'll get better speeds with higher quality spinning disks or much faster if you afford SSDs. The fan is pretty quiet, louder than a stand alone external drive, but quieter than hardware raids I've used. It's very solidly built which probably accounts for the relatively high price, for what is just an empty box, fan and sata/thunderbolt connections. Overall very pleased though.

Can you confirm this enclosure works with 6Tb drives please?
Hi Paul,

There is no limits with capacity so this unit will work with any SATA drives
