Five modes = Six possibilities
Yeah this is the right math! The controller supports RAID 0, 1, 3, 5 and 10. On top of that, there is always the possibility to switch to Single, so that each HDD will be displayed individually and accessed seperately. Externally, there are two possibilities to connect the enclosure to the computer, the first is via USB 3.0, the second is eSATA, each with its own transferrates.
And yet so simple
Many LEDs indicate regarding connections, if and which interface is used with the HDD as well as activity on the HDD. Additionally, fan information is displayed such as if the automatic fan control is used or which fan speed is set.
