Patriot Convoy and Convoy XL Hardware RAID 2.5 inch Enclosure Video Review
Our latest video review is of Patriot's Convoy and Convoy XL dual SATA hard disk drive and SSD enclosure caddies, which have only just gone on sale.
What's so special about a caddie? Patriot has gone fairly creative with its Convoy XL and added in hardware RAID support - that's right, these caddies support not one but two SATA or SATA2 2.5 inch hard drives or solid state drives. No PATA support here though, keep that in mind. There is RAID 0 and RAID 1 support as well as spanning and JBOD.
What is rather interesting with the XL model in particular is that you can run the drive like a normal external caddie via either eSATA or USB 2.0 or you can install the caddie internally inside your system in one of the empty hidden or visible 3.5 inch drive bays. The cheaper Convoy model is only able to be run internally by design.
The drives aren't super cheap, but they feature good design and initiative by Patriot. Watch the video below as we check out both the Convoy and Convoy XL and see if either are any good and worth buying or not.
