Also, your going to loose some in the transfer link between the drive itself and the enclosure, before its sent to the router, then finally to your computer on your gigabit network.

I still to this day highly recommend this enclosure, and I still keep it at a solid 5 out of 5 stars! Fan speed 2 is a lot less noisy but is noticeable. It supports 4 hdd of different brand and capacity up to 3TB per drive. Jediasonic will break sooner or later, I guarantee you.

This way it will stay on until I hit the power button to turn it off, or the power goes out. I am able to access my files whenever I want to without issue.


Support all brand of 3. The others are optional. Other modes are 1 – 3, with 1 being fastest. I keep my fan setting on Auto, and it never razes the fan speed beyond fan speed 3.
