The Enterprise 4 bay hard drive enclosure from Hornettek is the ultimate solution to fulfil your need for a user friendly, large capacity, hard drive storage device.
The unique thing about the Hornettek Enterprise 4x enclosure is that the disks are seen individually. All too often, as soon as enclosure manufacturers have two disks in an enclosure, they force you to add RAID - either mirroring the disks or striping them. This adds to the cost and complexity of the case.
Hornettek have taken a different approach. By having the enclosure as a 4 bay storage bay, the flexibility is greatly improved and the cost is reduced. You can purchase one disk, add another later and a 3rd and 4th when required. You can also remove disks and replace them with additional disks should you need to access even MORE disks!
By utilizing high performance USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces, the Enterprise can provide up to 200MB/s data transfer speed. The USB 3.0 is also backwards compatible with USB 2.0 ports. The Enterprise supports up to 12TB (4x3TB) hard drives without any additional hardware configurations.
Simply insert the hard drives into the enclosure and the computer will automatically detect all of them in seconds! The Enterprise is equipped with an energy saving design which can reduce power consumption by up to 25% compared to other devices.
Light weight yet durable, the revolutionary Spaceship design and innovative cooling structure allows fresh air to circulate via an 80mm adjustable speed cooling fan, reducing HDD heat by up to 33%. Smart auto power allows the device to automatically sleep when the PC is turned off and awaken when the PC is turned on.
Note that if you use the eSATA connection, your eSATA port needs to have a port-multiplier. If the eSATA port does not support port multiplication, then you will only see 1 disk. This is not relevant if you connected via USB.
