Would this be good for FlexRAID?
« on: September 04, 2012, 12:17:18 pm »
I came across this:
http://www.techpowerup.com/171639/Century-Outs-10-bay-3.5-inch-SATA-Drive-Tower.html

It's a 10-bay external drive tower that doesn't have RAID, meaning it sees every drive separately. Kind of like have another PC with 10 SATA ports in it.. except that here you can easily insert and take out the drives.

My drives keep falling out of the pool using my Perc 5/i cards, so I'm looking for something new.

What do you guys think?

I can't read Japanese but some guy posted on that link: "Select switch is provided in each bay HDD, you can select the HDD you want to use."

It doesn't sound like it can show you all 10 at the same time, just he one selected. In that case you should avoid it.
