A couple to try. Do be aware that the chipsets in these enclosures vary. Some are true hardware based systems others are hybrid which rely on the host cpu for some functionality. Others are just JBOD and totally rely on the host cpu raid software. The middle implementation is the one to avoid at all costs.
It is the worst of both worlds. The hardware component means that if the enclosure fails the raid is not easily rebuilt outside of an identical enclosure, the software component means too much cpu utilization and limitation with respect to platforms.
For raids attached to our edit systems, where the media is really just temporary, we use true hardware raids (albeit sata) for maximum performance. For stuff you need to keep, where performance is less of an issue, you might consider software raid and jbod since you don't want to be a victim of proprietary raid controller failure.
