RAIDBank4 – Review


Briefly described, the RAIDBank4 is a 4.85 x 6.5 x 9.1 inch box which holds four SATA hard drives (in this case, there were four decent quality Western Digital 500 GB drives). Micronet bills this unit as the "world’s smallest RAID". While I don’t know this to be true, I don’t think it could get much smaller.

About Larry Grinnell

Larry Grinnell has been a Mac user since before there were Macs, first being exposed to his brother-in-law’s Apple Lisa 7/7 office system, in 1982 or 1983.

After a nine year stint in the US Air Force, he took an electronics technician job at Motorola, Inc., where he stayed for almost 27 years. In that time, he held additional diverse positions from manufacturing engineering technician to technical writing to print production consultant to department webmaster.

Currently, he’s the sole technical writer for a small communications/electronics firm in Davie, FL. He is a member of the MyMac.com writing staff, and recently completed a two-year stint writing a weekly Macintosh and Apple-oriented column for the Palm Beach Business website (http://www.pbbusiness.com). In his copious free time, he does layout and prepress work for the Grinnell Family Association’s quarterly newsletter, and runs their website at http://www.grinnellfamily.org.

In 2013, one of his photographs was published in the New York Times.

He just finished editing, layout, and prepress work for an all new Grinnell family genealogy, which promises to be roughly 2,800 pages in size. Publication date is tentatively scheduled for late 2015 or early 2016.

Larry collects jazz guitar recordings, and is currently trying, for the fifth time, to learn to play the guitar.

He lives in Greenacres, FL.
