Each drive is equipped with a minimum cache of 128MB and a rotational speed of 7200 rpm, both of which help to ensure uninterrupted data transfers. The array itself is equipped with two 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports and one 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 port, each of which use USB Type-C connectivity. An included USB Type-C to Type-A adapter cable allows for compatibility with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0.
It operates using a 100-240V 250W power supply at 50/60 Hz, can be used in 24×7 operating environments, and supports storage expansion via daisy-chaining. The array also supports one 5K display or, via daisy-chaining, dual 4K displays.

With a variety of hardware-controlled RAID modes, including RAID 0, 1, 5, 6, 10, 50, and 60, each of which offers speed, data redundancy, or a combination of both. Using Thunderbolt 3, RAID 0 supports read and write speeds of up to 1400 MB/s, while a RAID 5 configuration supports read speeds up to 1200 MB/s and write speeds up to 1150 MB/s.
When using a USB 3.1 connection, RAID 0 reads and write speeds can go as high as 400 MB/s, while a RAID 5 configuration yields read and write speeds as high as 350 MB/s. Please bear in mind that actual data rates may vary depending on operating environment and other factors. Also, please be aware that RAID 0 does not support hot-swapping.
