I doubt an exhaustive list of USB wazzits, frobdars, & dimsum will
ever be written even for Winders or Linus, let alone FBSD.
Seeing as how the RAID controller, whether hard or soft, is going to be
behind a USB adapter, I doubt it's going to be visible as anything but
a pass(4)  & a da(4), though I doubt any bundled "RAID management
software" for that device does much more than check for grotty platters
& forcibly sync the drives (even to their detriment) if even that.
Also, does it have a battery to run on if it needs to finish syncing
after it's been unplugged?
