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

Such as http://www.amazon.com/s/?ie=UTF8&keywords=usb+3+raid&tag=googhydr-20&index=aps&hvadid=31546938437&hvpos=1t1&hvexid=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=8302811446685952842&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=b&hvdev=c&ref=pd_sl_3vt1ow9zvi_b

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
