Lian Li USB2.0 / E-SATA Hot Swap & Raid External Enclosure for 3.5 SATA Hard Drives : EX-30

Run out of space within your computer case? Now the answer is here with the tri bay, raid enabled Hot Swap Hard Drive Enclosure. With looks to die for this is the only option for increasing your data storage capabilities.

Lian-Li Industrial Co. Ltd has launched EX-30 (3xHDD’s) external HDD rack to support your storage needs in an all aluminium frame and housing. The HDD rack has a front loading door, with individual handles on a bracket for each HDD, as well as a back panel PCB with a RAID controller from Silicon Image. The Sil5744 chipset offers hot plug and play capability with many of the RAID settings required today.

The SATA HDD configuration is in a Hot Swap Plug & Play backplate with an integrated RAID controller chip. To keep the device cool there is an appropriately sized fan for your unit with a washable nylon filter keeping dust and debris out.

The devices connect via USB 2.0 (480Mb/s) or e-SATA (3 Gbps, auto-negotiates to 1.5 Gbps) directly to your PC. You should make sure your PC complies with the minimum requirements:

PC / Windows Systems:
  • Intel Pentium III 500 MHz equivalent or faster
  • Windows XP, 2003 Server or Windows Vista with latest Service Packs
  • 64MB RAM minimum
  • 250MB of free disk space
  • E-SATA & USB Connection
Macintosh Systems:
  • PowerMac G5, MacBook Pro or Mac Pro
  • Mac OS X 10.4.8 (or later)
  • E-SATA & USB Connection
  • Advantages of Hot Swap RAID array
These devices automatically rebuild HDD storage when a new one is added to the array when set up in safe mode. The best part is that no software is required and everything is automated from the moment you plug in the HDD’s and turn on the device to your desired setting.

Mounting HDD’s is very convenient, with each handle mounted using screws, which act as guiding wheels as the hot swap HDD device is inserted securely while minimizing the noises from HDD chatter

The cage on all units is lockable and complements Lian Li style with the hair-line brushed anodized aluminum in a black finish, combined with finely filed edges, and hand crafted tooling to prevent jagged edges, lending both safety and elegance to these neat external HDD cluster racks.
