I'm looking for a external USB raid 1 enclosure you can attach through USB 3.0 and supports NTFS file system. I found many in amazon, but I had a few bad experience, it didn't work well. If have you are currently using it, can you let me know what you use?

So, I'm looking for a rack which holds 4 drivers or more, supports RAID 1/0/10, USB 3.0

You need to think why are you wanting to use RAID?

If your data is valuable to you, why would you want to put it on a CHEAP device.

Why are you intending to use USB, is this because your machine doesnt have any expansion or this data is not very volatile - although USB seems to be reasonably fast it typically only works well for that that doesnt change very much mainly because the controllers don't do IOPS very well
