The CalDigit VR can reach speeds up to 220MB/s in RAID 0, and over 100MB/s with RAID 1 protection. RAID 1 provides the ultimate in protection and backup for valuable data, by mirroring data on both drives. If a drive fails all data can be restored.
Made from quality components the CalDigit VR is designed to last, and comes with CalDigit’s industry leading warranty and knowledgeable tech support. An advanced environmental monitor provides detailed information about temperature, fan RPM and hard drive health, so you are always in the know. The sleek and sexy design is as functional as it is good looking.

The energy saving, ambient temperature controlled smart fan, runs extremely quiet ensuring proper airflow and advance cooling without compromise. In-fact the fan doesn’t even run unless the CalDigit VR needs additional cooling.

This provides users with interactive assurance.

For sensitive data, the CalDigit VR’s software provides password protection against unauthorized changes.
The CalDigit VR has everything you need in the box. While other solutions require an additional purchase to use eSATA, the CalDigit VR includes an eSATA extender standard, a $29.99 value.
