The TerraMaster D5-300C is a simple way to add drives to a system for those that want a reliable, stable and quiet device that is offline. We has no issues streaming 4K Ultra HD videos and had fast data transfer speeds between this device and our Dell XPS 13 9360 laptop. If you are looking for a media server or mass storage server that is directly connected look no further! The build quality of the device was found to be fine and we liked the two quiet fans on the back of the unit that keeps hard drives nice and cool.
We wish a USB Type-C to USB Type-C cable was included as our laptop has a USB Type-C port, but the USB Type-C to USB Type-A cable worked just fine. It would be nice if more drives could be used in the RAID array to support more advanced RAID modes like RAID 6, but that would likely increase the price.
At $229.99 shipped with a 2-year warranty it is easy to recommend the TerraMaster D5-300C 5-bay USB 3.0 DAS device with 2+3 RAID mode. It works well, is easy to setup and offers quick data transfers with speeds of up to 453 MB/s according to our own independent benchmark tests.
Legit Bottom Line: The TerraMaster D5-300C was found to be fast, reliable and simple to use!
