Figure 3: LaCie Ethernet Disk RAID drive cage
The tray-mounted SATA drives slide easily into the drive cage (Figure 3). A lever with a locking mechanism secures the drives in the bay.

You can access the interior of the EDR (Figure 4) by removing the four case screws on the rear. Once inside, however, you’ll find that further disassembly is difficult as the well-built chassis is put together with a number of rivets.
The drive cage and the cage surrounding the 200 watt power supply are each riveted to the case. We were able to determine that an Intel XScale PR80219M400 400 MHz processor and 256 MB of DDR memory power the EDR. The underlying operating system is a Linux 2.6 core.
Power draw was measured at 65 W, which is in line with other quad-drive NASes we've seen. Note that there are no power save features on the EDR.
