Two WD 500GB (WDC WD6400AAKS-00A7B0) drives in two separate Macally enclosures (eSATA/USB that look like tiny Mac Pro's) from Newegg. The low-cost PCIe x1 adapter provides up to 100MB/second while the PCIe x4 card provides an amazing 200+ MB/second on reads and writes. brevado Smack-Fu Master, in training Registered: Apr 18, 2008Posts: 61 Posted: Sun Aug 09, 2009 10:46 am It was nice to see a reply from OWC on this topic. http://sortpictures.net/can-t-get/can-t-get-microsoft-visual-studio-to-work-on-windows-8-1.html

Wow, totally missed this. Only one problem recently popped up. The specs for that fan say it is 27db (6500 rpm) which is loud.

Stream counts will be significantly greater on a clean drive when attached via eSATA. I moved a (WD Raptor) 74GB 10,000 RPM drive out of the Mac Pro's case and into an external SATA case (OWC's single drive "quad" interface (SATA/FW800/FW400/USB 2.0) case).

And maybe stay away from WD and Seagate cases I guess. https://www.amazon.com/G-Technology-G-RAID-Dual-External-Drive/dp/B004E9SGWM And everything seemed fine.

Very, very fast, and I didn't even RAID0 them. huh?) as it is just too time-intensive/costly. yikes...
I must power up the drive before booting the mac or else it won't get recognized. I haven't tried booting off it, however. The fan used in this drive is annoyingly loud! Night!
It hasn't been a marriage made in heaven. Click here to make a request to customer service.

The MacPower enclosure seems similar to ones you can get from OWC (don't know about the internal chipset, power supply quality, etc.). --- So, from what you've reported, it seems like I could upgrade the drivers and cross my fingers that it won't happen again, but you won't touch it with a 10 foot pole, once you lose some data. I now use the OWC case for backup, and haven't had any trouble since.Fanless enclosures are definitely nice (no noise, and you don't even need to turn them on/off), and the
