Product Shot 1 The Pros:Offers RAID 0 and 1 options depending on preferences, hard drive can be easily reconfigured with the provided software. Windows and Mac compatible, can boot Mac OS directly from the firewire port. Good transfer performance, provided you connect it via firewire, don't expect too much from the USB2.0 speed.

The Cons:Lack of network connection, disappointing for a product of this price. Does not include USB or Firewire cables. Software limits restore options caused by catastrophic failure.

The Maxtor OneTouch III Turbo Edition is a high performance & large capacity network storage device designed for users seeking configurable RAID 0 & RAID 1 solutions.
