Final Thoughts

The T4 is a welcomed addition to the storage lineup from CalDigit. Adding a fourth bay to the enclosure has enabled CalDigit to produce a RAID 5 solution for those that want data redundancy without sacrificing performance. Build quality of the T4 was top notch with the all aluminum design, while the fan in the unit was quiet, while maintaining internal temperatures.

 

Performance of the T4 was rather good with RAID 0 thanks to the four bays. Here we were able to peak the unit out at 738 MB/s read and 734 MB/s write. RAID 1 results were on par with other solutions in our charts, with Black Magic we peaked at 253 MB/s read and 189 MB/s write, while RAID 5 results were at the top of our charts coming in at 539 MB/s read and 502 MB/s write.

The Bottom Line: CalDigit's T4 is a great solution for those wanting high performance storage with data redundancy. With the initial cost being quite high, this may steer some away, but this unit does have a class leading five-year warranty as well.
