2 X 2TB in RAID 1

I'm in need of storage with redundancy and I want it to last long enough, hence the 2TB. I've been looking for a good RAID 1 enclosure with eSata and 2TB drives that will work. I was looking at the W20EARS, but it's been brought to my attention that they don't work so good in a RAID environment due to the sleep recovery mode. As for the enclosure, I've found NexStar MX. All this will be linked to my laptop.

I would like to have recommendation for 2TB drives and/or a better casing. I don't want to pay more than 400$ for the whole kit.

Thanks in advance

  1. a bit more then you wanted to spend but everything will work right out the box. Nice thing is that this is s RAID 5 setup

    This is a bit cheaper, the drives can be set to RAID 1 for a total of 2 TB
  2. So finally I've ordered a pair of W20EARS and BlacX Duet. I'll do the "RAID 1" with Synkron. Let's hope everything fits together nicely.
