First off, PCDIY! begins by introducing the N2050: “The main difference between this product and other external hard disks on the market is that the N2050 has the capacity to accommodate two 3.5” SATA hard disks. In addition, this unit includes a bevy of features not seen on conventional external hard disk boxes. RAID 0/1 is controlled by an integrated Silicon Image chip. Besides the familiar USB 2.0 ports, the N2050 also comes equipped an eSATA interface, and even includes a PCI eSATA card (included with the Deluxe version, this card features a Silicon Image controller) and an eSATA cable. With these accessories, the N2050 supports a maximum SATA II 3Gbps transfer speeds, makes it possible for users older machines without eSATA capability to enjoy the speed increases over USB 2.0.”
The N2050's extremely easy-to-use nature also received praise from editors: “Installing the unit involves the included multilingual user guide, which enables users to clearly understand and install the unit, and get up and running. Selecting RAID 0 or RAID 1 is as simple as selecting the RAID level and restarting the computer.”
The verdict: “With outstanding build quality and Apple-esque design elements, and useful data security features, this is a no ordinary hard disk box. Overall, the N2050 is the best choice for users with large capacity needs, as well as users who require data security!”
