Taurus Super-S LCM

As of June 1, 2015, the Taurus Super-S LCM has been discontinued and this model is no longer being manufactured, sold or maintained.

The Taurus Super-S LCM was a 2-bay storage enclosure with built-in hardware RAID designed for two 3.5" hard disk drives. It featured a 4-in-1 interface with eSATA, FireWire 800, FireWire 400 and USB 2.0.

The replacement for this model is the Taurus Super-S3 LCM. It's identical with the old model except that the USB interface is now USB 3.0 instead of USB 2.0.
