Housing for 4 (or more?) SATA discs?
January 16, 2017 05:56AM
Hi

I am looking for a housing for 4 or more 3.5 sata discs (2 X WD purple, 5TB and one 1TB at the moment).

It should have usb 3 out, preferably east / sata as well.

I don't need any raid stuff, as I will use snap raid and mergers for these discs.

At the moment I am using separate USB 3 (and USB 2) housings and a USB hub, but would .liuke to consolidate this setup.

Any suggestions and experiences? Or should I go another route?

Thanks,

Rainer

Is this a good example of what you're looking for? I've seen them way cheaper, but pulled this up to check with you.

What are you using to power them?

I'll be back within a few days and better prepared anyway, so it's win/win..

Thanks - I want to connect it via USB 3 port at the moment (later via sata to my GoFlex Net) so that one would not work - but good to know.

I am looking for something like this but preferably cheaper.

Any experiences with these type of enclosures? I read hdd killing stories (several) on amazon reviews of the HornetTek bays. So I want to know: are they working? Reliably? I don't feel like putting my hdd with data into enclosures which have a habit of eating data...

If you had the budget, what about this GTech Hardware RAID 8-Bay Thunderbolt 2 Storage Solution $2,899.95 - $400.95 (today's 1/23/17 promo code: 5585988) = $2,499.00 + Free S/H. I believe you can disable the RAID function as you wish.

Looks nice - but if I would have the funds, I would build this NAS
