r2420-b3a   Taking part in online game beta tests while also performing hardware reviews at the same time is not only incredibly tiresome (especially if you are participating in 3 closed betas) but also takes an amazing amount of time (even more if you really enjoy the games you're testing) and so because of that lately I’ve been focusing on peripheral devices (such as gaming mice, keyboards, speakers and headsets) which i can use while testing these games in order to save every bit of time that i possibly can (i do need some sleep after all). However exceptions are always welcome and so today we will be taking a look at a storage product the Runner 2420-B3, the latest dual bay external 2.5" SSD/HDD RAID enclosure by RAIDON.

 

   RAIDON Technology Inc. founded in year 2000, also a brand name “RAIDON” has established to be known for quality and reliable Professional Storage Solutions.

   There aren't really that many external dual 2.5" HDD enclosures in the market currently so when i first heard about the Runner R2420-B3 from my friends over at RAIDON i was a bit surprised but also glad since you can use both SSDs and HDDs with 2.5" enclosures (something which is not possible with most 3.5" enclosures). However that's not really all and so the R2420-B3 features a very comfortable easy ejection system (the same we saw with the ih2420-2s-s2) and also offers JBOD/RAID0/1 modes for maximum performance and/or maximum data safety. So at least at first glance the Runner R2420-B3 really looks like a very impressive dual 2.5" HDD external enclosure but is that really so? Well there's really no simple answer for that so better read on to find out.
