Very Unsatisfied

Consumer review (newegg.com)

NORCO DS-500e

 

Would not build RAID 5 reliably, and disk trays did not fit into cabinet very well making insertion and removal diffcult.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Excellent value. It works for me!!

 

I was attracted to the DS-500 box because of an excellent review on AMUG(see Google).

Remember it's really not designed to compete performance-wise with higher-end $3000-$7000 hardware RAID boxes you see in the back of PC World.
