The RAID Tower Mini is built basing on the Mini Storage Tower platform features increased portability by reducing the size and weight to half of the RAID Tower IV. Depending on the model, up to four 3.5" SATA or eight 2.5" SATA hard drives can be installed into the RAID Tower Mini. The drives can be configured as a RAID set and be connected to the computer via USB 3.0, USB 2.0 or the eSATA connection up to 6Gbps. RAID Tower Mini comes with a low noise cooling fan and stylish design with swing open well ventilated front panel for easy drive access. Each model comes with everything needed for connecting to the computer. All is needed is to add your own hard drives and connect them to the Port Multiplier or the bridge that is inside the chassis.


About this model

This RAID Tower Mini is integrated with the latest 6G Port Multiplier (PM) to support high data rate of 6Gbps when connecting to a 6G eSATA port. All the drives connecting to the PM are connected to the system via a single eSATA cable and appear as individual drive to the system. Drives can be set as a single RAID volume via the RAID utility of the OS or the connected host controller.
