Direct Access Storage is a great alternative to the high priced NAS servers. If you only use a single computer in your home then DAS is actually a better option since all of your data is tied to that system and is not exposed to wireless networks. When it really comes down to it, the AXUS FiT 500 is even cheaper than a dedicated internal RAID controller and for many a better option since not every case has room for an additional five hard drives or the power to keep them running smoothly.
The performance of the AXUS FiT 500E maxes the eSATA interface, so it would be nearly impossible to get more performance until we start to see external SATA 6 Gb/s products. But with no mention of eSATA 6 Gb/s coming from SATA-IO, it will be awhile before those dreams materialize.
When it comes to the cost of the AXUS FiT 500E, the MSRP of 429.00 USD is in line with similar products in this class. I can't say I like only finding the 500E available from only one e-tailer in the U.S. but I was assured that more are coming and we should start to see AXUS products being made widely available in North America in the coming months.
