Still the king of cheap storage
Subject: Storage | April 8, 2008 - 03:00 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
The JBOD (Just a Bunch Of Disks) used to be one of the easiest ways to set up a large sized storage drive without spending much money. In the array is a logic chip that allows any two drives, regardless of size, make or manufacturer; to be combined into a single large disk. With HDD prices dropping quickly and RAID controllers being built into motherboards the JBOD has lost it's previous popularity. It hasn't disappeared completely, the brand new and bright yellow Eagletech I-Series JBOD Enclosure is up for review at Pro-Clockers. It can handle up to 2 terabytes of SATA drives, and transfers over USB 2.0.
"A new company to us here at Pro-Clockers is Eagle Tech. Browsing around their site we see they are active in cooling,
speakers, power supplies and storage. Storage is why we are here today as Eagle Tech has sent us their ET-CSIU2J-BK JBOD
External Storage Enclosure. This unit utilizes the JBOD standard and a very interesting front bezel. The enclosure
houses two SATA drives and plugs into the PC via the USB port."
