Simple settup, inconvenient when one disk dies,
This review is from: SimpleTech 2TB SimpleDrive Pro Duo USB 2.0/eSata External Drive (FP-UFE2/2TB) (Personal Computers)I bought this after the RAID utility in a comparable Buffalo box wouldn't switch to RAID 1. No problem with this drive, as you do it through a mechanical switch on the back of the box. The other "nice" thing about this SimpleTech box is that the only printed instructions were printed directly on the inside flap of the box! In connecting it up to a USB port, I saw that the drive was already configured NTFS RAID 0, with documentation files on the drive itself. Bring up the startup program and you're presented with a menu of documents, all of which are on the Web. Brought up the one with instructions on how to switch to RAID 1 and followed the instructions.
The software included on the drive doesn't touch the drive at all. All it does is provide instructions on how to get Windows to initialize the drive! That actually kind of gives my heart warm fuzzies. The only "software" from SimpleTech that physically accesses the drive is the RAID firmware built into the drive hardware... Read more

Very strongly urge you not to buy this thing.,
This review is from: SimpleTech 2TB SimpleDrive Pro Duo USB 2.0/eSata External Drive (FP-UFE2/2TB) (Personal Computers)Piece of junk. I don't normally write reviews, but I wish someone would have warned me about this thing. I wouldn't take another one for free. All it did was cost me money, time and lot of data that was important to me.

Avoid this drive at all cost,
This review is from: SimpleTech 2TB SimpleDrive Pro Duo USB 2.0/eSata External Drive (FP-UFE2/2TB) (Personal Computers)I bought the 4 TB version of this Hitachi drive from Fry's. It failed the second day I used it. My computer (running Vista Ultimate 32 bit) would not recognize it. I contacted Hitachi Tech Support and was told to return the drive. I exchanged it for another one (by the way, both were brand new). I used the second drive for 2 weeks, then my computer suddendly cannot see any data. I contacted Hitachi Tech Support and was told that the partition table was corrupted. Fry's would not take this drive back because the model was now discontinued and out of stock. To have two drives fail within one month and lose data twice was simply unacceptable. Hitachi Tech kept on boasting on how reliable their drives are to me when I talked to them!!
Hitachi now will send me a refurbished G-RAID drive (from another division of their company). I'll post my experience with this Hitachi drive once I have used it.
