By enabling usage of the USB 2.0 ad FireWire 800 dual-interface features, flexibility and speed in productivity are highly increased.

Using the DataWhale 2-Bay RAID System is as simple and familiar as using a single bay external enclosure. Simply install the HDDs, set the chosen RAID mode via a Mode Switch, connect the cables, and power on for a massive storage System on your desktop. The need for software and GUI installation is eliminated. Onboard LED indicators keep you apprised of the system, connection, and HDD status, while the user-friendly HDD tray design makes HDD hot swapping effortless.

The DataWhale 2-Bay RAID System features an outstanding mechanical design and rugged aluminum elegance. The high quality, silent-running fan exhausts hot air away from the internal HDDs, dramatically enhancing internal air flow to cool the high RPM SATA HDDs.
