Hardware RAID that works seamlessly between Macs and PCs
A software RAID storage system is unable to overcome the problems associated with cross-platform usage. It is only through hardware RAID controller chipsets that users can use these hard drives concurrently in Mac or Windows computers. With the ST2's built-in hardware RAID controller chipset and Thunderbolt™ 3 host interface, not only does it promise high transmission speed, it also eliminates the cross-platform usage issues associated with RAID 0 or RAID 1 setups. Also, with hardware RAID, all data is computed and processed by the built-in CPU. With such advantages, your computer performance can be focused on running the software and work, instead of handling the storage device's transmission issues. (RAID storage is used between Mac OS and Windows PC platforms and needs to use the same file format, for example: exFat file format).
The ST2-TB3 is equipped with three configuration modes to suit every need
The ST2-TB3 has three built-in disk configuration modes: RAID 1 (Safe Mode), RAID 0 (Speed Mode), JBOD (Two Independent Volumes) for you to choose according to your needs.
The RAID 1 function provides fully automatic backup that ensures data security.
RAID 0 functionality increases storage speed and performance.
JBOD function provides two independent disk data access convenience.
Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) brings you 40Gbps extreme high data transfer speed
ST2-TB3 supports Thunderbolt™ 3.0 (TB3) interface for an extreme high data transfer speed. And both of the two TB3 ports are equipped with a up to 40Gb/s data transfer rate which is 4 times faster than USB 3.1 Gen 2 ,2 times faster than Thunderbolt™ 2.0 and even 8 times than SATA III interface. You could definitely use it to play your 4K high-resolution films with no any lagging hassle. Thunderbolt™ 3.0 interface not only brings you this high data transfer rate advantage, it also let you chain maximum up to 6 products (or other compatible storage products).
ST2-TB3 to support both of 3.5" HDD and 2.5" HDD & SSD products
To bundle with two new easy-to-use Trays, ST2 supports any kinds of 3.5" & 2.5" HDDs/SSDs. And also, ST2's aluminum housing help protecting your data from its solid structure design and the excellent heat dissipation.
Since this new easy-to-use Tray is dimensional compliant to all our Stardom products, you could easily transfer your data among different storage devices. And also, its key lock design could provide a double protection at your data from any improper Tray extracting.
The solid aluminum chassis pluses one powerful low noise Fans
ST2-TB3's solid chassis is made by a thickness aluminum-alloy plate. And its aluminum housing and the 4 cm FANs (with safe FAN GUARDs) really help an efficient heat dissipation for your long time use.
Advanced power management
ST2-TB3 uses energy-efficient hardware components that work hand in hand with the Mac system to conserve power. It spins down hard drives and activates sleep mode after a period of inactivity.
Thunderbolt™ 3 The USB-C that does it all
All our Thunderbolt™ 3 products support USB-C type connector and you could always use it to charge not only your mobile phone but notebook thru its 15W 5V/3A PD (Power Delivering) feature.
All our Thunderbolt™ 3 products also support a Mini DisplayPort which gives you a very easy way to connect to your display device. This Mini DisplayPort is fully complaint to all the existing DVI, HDMI, and VGA display devices thru an adapter.

Thunderbolt™ 3 With ST2-TB3 Stylish and Rugged
The ST2-TB3 has a sleek exterior design that’ll never go out of style when placed next to your Mac. It’s also built tough with thickness aluminum to shield the enclosed drives durably and to dissipate the heat created by the drives faster for the drives to work comfortably.
Just to use ST2-TB3 for data backup
You can also easily extend your legacy device with Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) interface, which connects to a iMac Pro device with Thunderbolt™ 3 (USB-C) interface. Your iMac Pro could connect to one ST2-TB3 for a huge memory storage capacity thru its high performance Thunderbolt™ 3 interface. You could definitely enjoy its huge memory capacity together with the RAID 1 for an excellent data protection.
To help you complete your photography projects
With two ultrafast Thunderbolt™ 3 ports, you can build a photo studio around Macbook Pro and ST2-TB3. Or take them with you and import thousands of RAW images on location. Once your photos are on your computer, editing in Aperture is faster and more responsive than before.
ST2-TB3's RAID 0 mode lets you quickly browse large image libraries from external storage. So you have instant access to any photo in your library.

- RAID 0 mode: Speed mode, the data is divided, and stored of dispersing on each hard disk at the same time, large volume storage with high speed throughput but without data protection feature.
- RAID 1 mode: Mirror mode, the data will be stored in each HDD at the same time, so the capacity will only be half of its total capacity but it’s with an excellent data protection feature.
- JBOD mode: Independent mode, each HDD is used independently with no data protection feature.
Step 1: Please connect ST2-TB3 to your Mac, and turn on it.
Step 2: Please set RAID Dip-switch to the position you want to choose.
Step 3: Please use the Key to press the hidden RESET key at the back-plate, hold and wait for the end of Blue-Purple LED blinking till a stable Blue light.
Step 4: Please turn off your ST2-TB3, and re-turn it on again. Now, you have set the ST2-TB3 with a new RAID mode successfully.
- Note: When you change the RAID mode, the data will be erased, please save your data before changing RAID mode.
