The RTX430-3QR offers up to 200 MB/s performance, and contains TrayFree™ bays, quiet fans, all of the popular connection types, and a durable handle for portability. With 4TB hard drives, the RTX430-3QR can store up to 16 terabytes in a small footprint.

TrayFree bays make adding or swapping drives effortless. It’s as easy as opening the door, sliding the drive in, and closing the door. No screws, no trays. It just works.

The state-of-the-art hardware RAID controller built into RTX430-3QR offers RAID 0, 1, 10, 3, and the speedy RAID 5 – a very fast setup that enables data safety and continues to function in the event of a single hard drive failure. If a hard drive should fail you can keep using the unit with no data loss. To continue protecting your data, simply replace the drive to initiate an automatic rebuild process.

If you’re going to carry the RTX430-3QR wherever you go, rest assured it will connect to most computers. With four different connection options (USB 3.0, USB 2.0, FireWire, and eSATA), you’ll be ready for whatever you encounter and will be able to transfer data at speeds up to 200+ MB/s (depending on drives and connection type).
Its low power consumption and quiet fans make for unobtrusive desktop storage.

For extra protection during transit or shipment, a dustproof, waterproof Pelican® 1560 case is available for your RTX430-3QR.  Its custom foam is designed to hold one RTX430-3QR along with a full complement of hard drives in individual slots. A retractable handle and wheels make it easy to travel with, and its small size allows it to be accepted as carry-on luggage by most airlines.
