Generally the set-up process works well however in our testing, switching multiple times between the different modes, we found that Windows did not like multiple changes. So we recommend deciding which mode suits your needs and sticking with it. Or at least keeping with minimal changes.

Looking specifically at performance the JBOD results show that we are getting pretty decent performance from the mSATA SSD in our RAIDBOX. The drive isn’t hitting its limit though, so it seems our ZOTAC controller could be a little higher spec however we still exceed many other forms of portable storage. There is minimal performance impact from RAID 1 and BIG gives us near identical performance to the single drive which is great. For RAID 0 performance the enclosure manages to peak at 289MB/s, up 35-40MB/s though writes are locked at the limit of the enclosure.
So what do we make of the ZOTAC RAIDBOX? Well on the build quality front we would have liked to see ZOTAC go with an aluminium chassis. It would provide a more robust enclosure but also add an extra quality level to the device.
Configuration and install of the device is easy. Slot in some drives, screw them down, set the mode, turn on and close. Simple.
So that brings us to performance and value. As we need to install mSATA drives in the RAIDBOX this adds cost over the initial purchase and we feel that although we tested with two high spec models (needed for review purposes) this isn’t necessarily the best route for consumer use. We would look at the mSATA drives out there and balance cost and specification. For example two cheaper mSATA SSDs with read/write of 150-200MB/s in RAID 0 would hit the ideal level for the interface/controller used here while minimising cost. At that point the 290/190MB/s speed of the enclosure hits a better value point while still exceeding the speed of most traditional portable storage.
That said the ability to use RAID 1 for data protection in a portable device has its own benefits if that is required… all in all a decent performing, flexible offering in the portable storage arena.
