External 3.5"/5.25" Enclosure - DAS With RAID Capability?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am looking to set up a media server that I believe will work best if I can find a single enclosure with 2+ 3.5" bays, and at least one 5.25" bay. Ideally it would be USB3.0 and/or Thunderbolt capable.

So far in my searching, nothing seems to exist. Is anyone on OCN that is reading this aware of such a bit of hardware? Would love to hear about it if so.

Man, I doubt it. I've never ever seen an HD enclosure with an external 5.25" bay... Why would you want that?

RAID enclosures are already kinda niche and expensive, and you're really adding on to that.

They exist, but typically for SCSI based infrastructure. It's needed for a media backup and burn station, and ideally combine it into NAS function as well.
