Sans Digital MS2UT DAS

Peripheral storage devices are quickly becoming a popular item among computer users, and owning an external storage device will be just as common as owning a printer very soon. Additionally, it is not uncommon to find and external storage device connected to a computer in a home, office, or SOHO in this day and age. Recently, the price of hard disk drives has dropped to the point where anyone can afford large capacity drives, so it makes good sense to begin investing in a secondary storage location. And with data transfer rates available at 1.5Gbs speeds via eSATA interface connections, these large drives can see their full potential.

QNAP is one of the many new companies which aim to satisfy the growing need for external storage solutions. In this product review, I will take a close look at their MobileSTOR MS2UT eSATA RAID enclosure. This enclosure offers RAID-0 and RAID-1 capability, with high-speed transfers available up to 1.5Gbps through the included eSATA cable, or 480Mbps with USB 2.0.

The MobileSTOR Series MS2UT is a 2bay external RAID solution designed for video editing and data storage. With simplicity and flexibly in mind, the MS2UT is equipped with 2 Hot-Swappable 3.5” lockable drive trays and both USB 2.0 and eSATA host interfaces. Utilizing cutting edge Serial-ATA HDD technology, the MS2UT is guaranteed to provide unparallel performance to meet most data intensive demands. Supporting RAID 0 or RAID 1, enclosed in stylish aluminum housing, the MS2UT will allow you to easily choose between ultimate performance and high redundancy.
