    Looking for a firewire external dual bay enclosure, suggestions?
    I've searched high and low and I can't find the 'perfect' solution just yet. I have found some at OWC but not many reviews out there plus some are pricey.

    (*) Newer Technology Guardian MAXimus RAID... (GM8U2KIT0GB) at OWC
    Icy Dock 2 Bay SATA II External USB 2.0 +... (MB662UEAB-2S) at OWC
    OWC Mercury Elite-AL Pro 800+USB2 RAID Read... (MEPQ936AL2) at OWC

    Looking for firewire 800 + usb 2.0
    Internal 3.5'' sata

    Suggestions?

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    I have one of the Mercury Elite-AL Pro cases - quad interface - non raid version... Like it, it sits in the end table by my recliner in the TV room - it's a quiet enclosure. Wouldn't hesitate trying that one out if I was looking for a RAID enclosure.

    Also like the availability of the quad interface on it for the money. The Icy Dock just seems to be overpriced.

    Check out the post by Peter SR here on the Mercury and the Newer Tech.
