Lost Review?4x 2.5" Sata Raid In 5.25" Drive Bay

Recommended Posts

I remember a review/test/article somewhere on the web about a hard drive enclosure for 4x 2.5 inch SATA laptop disk drives that fitted into a 5.25 inch wide / 1 inch high drive bay of a standard case. They then ran them as RAID 1+0 and compared the setup to pther high speed aletrnatives (eg. Raptor 10Krpm SATA RAID).

Does anyone remember this and can point me to it ?

Thanks.

It didn't see a review, but Tom's was showing a 6 x 2.5" drive rack (2 across by 3 down). It think it was part of their comdex review.

I only remember seeing a photo with a caption nothing more. The author was speculating what kind of performance 6 drives in RAID 0 would produce.

Another idea where someone beat me to the punch,

Here's the manufacturer's brochure. It includes a couple of charts regarding striping and RAID 5 performance.

JMR SATAStor is the product name.

It looks like it tops out at ~100MB/sec. Usually a sign of a regular PCI bus. I wonder what it would do on a 64/66 / PCI-X card?? Hmmm.
