The Thunder3 RAID Station 2-Bay RAID Array functions both as a dual-bay storage solution with a hardware RAID controller, as well as a Thunderbolt 3 dock. Users will be able to expand the storage of their compatible Thunderbolt 3 Windows or Mac system with two 3.5″ or 2.5″ SATA hard drives or SSDs. For those who require performance, the two drives can be striped together as a RAID 0, which provides speed, but no data redundancy. If you are concerned about data redundancy, RAID 1 provides 1:1 drive mirroring, which will cut your overall capacity by 50% and cause performance drops as well. For those who do not require a RAID, JBOD and SPAN modes are also available.
Aside from its storage aspects, the docking capabilities of the Thunder3 allow users to connect additional compatible Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.0 Type-A, DisplayPort 1.2, Gigabit Ethernet, and SD 4.0 UHS-II peripherals. The Thunder3 contains two bidirectional 40 Gb/s Thunderbolt 3 ports, each of which utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector and also supports 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2. Additionally, you can daisy-chain up to five devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port. As one Thunderbolt 3 port is used to interface with your host system, the other is used for daisy chaining. Both Thunderbolt 3 ports support up to 27W of power charging for compatible devices, such as the MacBook Pro (Late 2016).
In addition to its Thunderbolt 3 ports, the Thunder3 has two 5 Gb/s USB 3.0 Type-A ports, which is also known as USB 3.1 Gen 1 and helps maintain compatibility with legacy devices. The DisplayPort allows for a 4K/60 Hz monitor to be connected, network connectivity is achieved using the Gigabit Ethernet port, and the integrated SD 4.0 UHS-II card reader lets you download photos and videos from your digital camera or other device. Included are an external power supply and a Thunderbolt 3 cable, and protection is provided by a limited 2-year warranty.
