Great review!

Now for the same question I asked a couple of weeks ago..... :)

If this was plugged into a sata port (through the included ESata bracket) with two drives set to Raid 0, would XP see it as a single drive thus removing the need for F6 raid drivers?

If so, do you have the read/write #s for a single drive operating normally on a Sata port, and how do those #s compare to two drives raided in this enclosure?

Thanks sswilson,

Yup its seen as just another regular sata hard drive by the OS so I would hazard a guess and say no need for f6 (didn't manually install an OS on so its only a guess...and with Bashrat the Sneaky driverpacks I haven't needed f6 for a long while)

If IIRC the Jbod numbers were so freaking close too the internal sata connection numbers the difference was negligible. I think about the only thing it added was .1ms latency but everything else was darn near the same. I was really bored there awhile ago so I cloned my internal 500gb WD SE16 unto it (RAID 0) and I noticed a big dif in load speeds (since gone back to internal as I "needed" the mobilstor for transferring huge files to another system).
