Hard drive

A hard disk drive (HDD) is a data storage device used for storing and retrieving digital information using rapidly rotating discs (platters) coated with magnetic material. An HDD retains its data even when powered off. Data is read in a random-access manner, meaning individual blocks of data can be stored or retrieved in any order rather than just sequentially. An HDD consists of one or more rigid ("hard") rapidly rotating discs (platters) with magnetic heads arranged on a moving actuator arm to read and write data to the surfaces.

(block-level striping without parity or mirroring) has no (or zero) redundancy. It provides improved performance and additional storage but no fault tolerance.

1

(mirroring without parity or striping), data are written identically to two drives, thereby producing a "mirrored set"; the read request is serviced by either of the two drives containing the requested data, whichever one involves least seek time plus rotational latency.

5

(block-level striping with distributed parity) distributes parity along with the data and requires all drives but one to be present to operate; the array is not destroyed by a single drive failure.

A RAID 10 group is a RAID 0 over several RAID 1, combining the characteristics of both RAIDs: security and increased read/write speed.
A RAID 10 network requires at least four hard disks.

Accepted answer

Yes, I used it first with an iMac and now with a Windows 10 PC. I have 3 4TB drives formatted as a single disk. I format it as HDFS for OSX and now as NFTS for Windows. The connection is USB 3. When I first bought, I tried plugging it to a router to use it as a NAS but OSX kept failing to copy my files, so i connected directly.

Hallo 777matthias777. Bei meiner Box habe ich den Lüfter durch einen 700Upm leisen Lüfter von Noiseblocker ersetzt, dieser ist praktisch lautlos - zu hören sind nur noch die Festplatten. Was die automatische Abschaltung betrifft, so funktioniert diese bei mir einwandfrei. Schau doch mal, ob bei dir im Hintergrund irgendwelche Programme laufen, die auf die "Smart-Daten" deiner Festplatten zugreifen. Zum Beispiel Aida64 - dort lässt sich das in den Einstellungen deaktivieren. Dann müsste das auch mit dem Standby-Modus der Lian Li Box funktionieren. Ansonsten bin ich wirklich sehr zufrieden, die Box läuft einwandfrei und ist ordentlich schnell.more

@jörgkaufma

ich kann echt nicht nachvollziehen, was sie von diesem gerät erwarten. zuerst befüllen sie es über der spez und dann meckern sie wegen der lautstärke, welche doch echt kaum hörbar ist.

ich empfehle diesem troll nichts zu glauben.

das lian li ist bei mir seit nem jahr im dauereinsatz und ich werde mir weitere kaufen. beste verarbeitung, leise also alles was mal will. ausser man spinnt und besitzt keinen bezug zur realität.

Funktioniert wie erwartet, wenn die Software bereits von anderen Geräten installiert ist, wird auch das neue sofort erkannt.
SATA3 ist kein Problem. Jedoch erreiche ich mit USB3 "nur" 60-65Mb/s, während via Esata das Doppelte durchgeht. Am gleichen USB Anschluss erreiche ich aber mit anderen Platten ebenfalls 120Mb/s. k.a. warum dem so ist, spielt mir aber keine Rolle.
Preis/Leistung ist genial.
