Lian Li is known for its extremely high-quality, hand-crafted aluminum body with a contemporary design and functional features. One of these features is SATA hot-swap, whereby a corresponding drive can be replaced quickly and hard drives to removable storage are virtually. After the fixed hot-swap drive cages and retrofitting internal solutions Lian Li is now offering external hard drive enclosure with this technology.
There is also a toolbar, which provides different RAID modes to choose from. With the Big mode the drives as a single treatment, with appropriately summed amount of memory. In addition, the EX-503 supports RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5 and RAID-10.
The modes of RAID 5 and RAID-10 offers a mix of higher speed, while providing greater security. The solution is also based purely hardware and requires no special drivers or software. The high level of user friendliness is also apparent because the disks for RAID does not have to be reformatted and is even an automatic mirroring in RAID-1 mode as soon as one is exchanged between the two drives.
