Rating: 5/5 Unique USB RAID Enclosure for Portable Backups October 23, 2017 This CineRAID CR-H216 Dual Bay Portable Enclosure was exactly what I needed for on the go backups of my MacBook Pro. This box requires two matched drives, and as you read and write data, the CineRAID box will write the same data to both drives. Why does it do that - because that way you'll have identical data on two physical drives instead of one. If a drive failure occurs, you'll still have one drive left with valid data. It's like having a backup of a backup. Because these are "laptop" drives, they're inherently small and the two units stacked in the enclosure make an easy to store and transport package while you're on the go. I've used this type of technology for years in large server farms, and being able to squeeze two drives into a package that will fit in a large pocket is perfect for travel. Additionally, the CineRAID has a password option that can be used to deny access to anyone if the enclosure is lost or misplaced. Overall, it's a great package that anyone who is serious about computing should consider for portable and secure backup.

I would recommend this item to a friend!

Rating: 5/5 This product has been a reliable backup. February 18, 2016 I have two 1TB HD mirrored giving me the additional backups I want for my pictures. So far so good. Only a couple of months but I have had good success with my HDs in the past, so I expect a few years of service.
