    Hi all. We're currently looking for an external hard drive enclosure with hardware raid1. I've been looking at candidates, and I've only found one that is definitely raid1:

    I've found a couple other enclosures, but can't tell if they are hardware or software raid. Does anyone happen to know? Any other suggested disks would also be helpful. Thanks!

    The LaCie has a manual switch on the back, so to me that says hardware switch. As an aside, I picked up a refurb one from the LaCie store, save a nice spot of cash, and it's humming along like a dream after 3 solid days of transferring my iTunes library.
