    I have the two of the two bay version. Honestly I'd avoid it, the fans are super cheap and end up vibrating quite quickly, they also have no speed control on them so even if they're cool they're still spinning full. I've had one unit "forget" its RAID configuration (mirror) and lose the data. They spin the disks down after about 60 seconds of no use, cool for power savings but really annoying if you are using it but not consistently since you have to wait for them to spin back up over and over. Connecting via USB 3.0 has issues working consistently on Linux using AMD based controllers.
