The device if very easy to setup. The instructions were clear and easy. The lights on the front a bit overwhelming at first glance, but once you actually look to see what they do, it is easy to understand. However, they are a bit too small in some cases to see what function they are referring. As for the functionality, it seems to work well. I ran into an issue with the box hanging and the computer not being able to backup to the device, however this was due to a bad drive. That said, since I have it set up for RAID 5, it should have just kept going, so I'm not sure what that was about. I pulled the drive and reformatted it separately and then put it back into the box. The box then went about rebuilding the RAID set, but since the drive was having a problem, it still shows that it needs to be replaced. However, now it is no longer hanging. Overall, I'm very happy with it, especially at this price point!

Easy to setup, I like the mounting hardware that comes with the product. I am buying another-one soon.

This is a decent enclosure and does everything specified except RAID 10. After going through the undersized manual and reading the one enclosed on the CD, I wasn't certain that it was raid 10 (1+0). I contacted the company tech support and they confirmed that it is actually raid 0+1. Basically this means if you have 4 drives... 1a 1b 2a and 2b you can have failures only on one stripe. This means a second disc failure (without rebuilding with a new drive) will have a 66% chance of losing everything (RAID 0+1) vs a 33% chance of losing everyhing (RAID 1+0). Considering I purchased this for RAID 10 specifically, this is rather upsetting.
