I love Western Digital but seriously ...

How does one screw up the performance in a raid 0?

The blu-ray transfer looks great, but the Game Directory Transfer and Backup Directory tests look terrible.

And that was after seeing the device crush everything else in the Sequential Read and Write benchmarks.

Is there a reason for this "odd write performance".

"improved raid controller silicon" . right... because RAID 0/1 requires so much horsepower. RAID controllers in anything but RAID5 do nearly nothing. And R5 in these types of enclosures is a turd at best.
 
With 4TB hard drive capacity turning 8 this year I find that price to be extreme. The 2TB drives used are decade old capacity. I get HD makers had the flood in 2012 that destroied a lot of costly equipment. I even get they hit a hard wall capacity wise to get past. At this point tho they should be looking at quanity sales Its a step in the right direction with 2 drives but price is a bit beyond reason.
