There are some great ones out there that are not had to manage, and as you say, have the built in redundency should one drive fail,  I would also recommend using a remote location as Britt suggests like Carbonite or Google drive.  You do pay a yearly fee but its not unreasonable and that gives you security if the raid is stolen.  Most remote storage can be set up to automatically sync with the local raid so you are always covered.

For several reasons… 1) I don't have enough space on the cloud to back up my entire hard drive. 2) For security reasons; I keep tax records, receipts, etc. on my computer, and I don't want these on the cloud, regardless of security claims. I'm just not that trusting yet. I'm referring to the Apple Cloud, in regard to amount of storage space.

It is a big improvement over the 9 (!) external hard drives that I had previously. It was just too many wires and too many plugs and not enough receptacles. The only downside, is that the RAID takes about 20-30 seconds to spin up if it is in a sleep mode. But other than that, it's great not to have to think about cloning a drive. It just works.

For several reasons… 1) I don't have enough space on the cloud to back up my entire hard drive. 2) For security reasons; I keep tax records, receipts, etc. on my computer, and I don't want these on the cloud, regardless of security claims. I'm just not that trusting yet. I'm referring to the Apple Cloud, in regard to amount of storage space.

It is a big improvement over the 9 (!) external hard drives that I had previously. It was just too many wires and too many plugs and not enough receptacles. The only downside, is that the RAID takes about 20-30 seconds to spin up if it is in a sleep mode. But other than that, it's great not to have to think about cloning a drive. It just works.
