Recommendation for portable RAID 1 storage 1TB

Hi All

Can anyone recommend a product that will give minimum storage of 1TB in the most reliable way at the best price?

Does something exist which is RAIDed 1TB SSDs with a reliable raid controller so if one fails it will still work?

In the past I've had a Buffalo Terastation and the whole thing went wrong when a disk broke and the RAID controller couldn't rebuild the array. Don't want anything else to happen.

Storage device with SSD? Why SSD? Normally reading from SSD is faster than writing to it. It would be worth if you want to read data from it like putting shares on it.
Every device will fail, so the term - reliable is wrong here. They are all reliable. So far. But all will fail once.
We use here LaCie as well and it is working ok since 2 years. But I don't know if it is reliable till it gets the problem.
