  DupliDisk3
DupliDisk3 by www.arcoide.com

It is not too often I mention a hardware device that was sent to me for reviewing without reviewing it. It is a DupliDisk3 ide raid controller – www.arcoide.com – It is designed to insert into a spare 5 ½ inch or 3 ¼ drive bay. They sent me the 5 ½ inch one and I don’t have any spare drive bays.

BUT I read the manual and looked at the hardware. Well done and looks easy to install and according to their manual will be transparent while operating. It has indicator lights (love those flashing leds) and an alarm that will sound if one of the mirrored drives fail. I also can’t use it as I am constantly changing my “C” drives (removable for testing) and would therefore waste a lot of time mirroring them each time I removed and inserted another one.

I would have liked to have had this unit when I was in my office as we were always afraid of loosing years of data (even though it was backed up) by having the hard drive fail. If you are running a data computer I would recommend you look at this product.

I will install it in Nick’s new computer when we build it.
