    I just brought one of these 5 bays and my 5tb won’t read but when I put it back in the original enclosure it works fine

    I've had Orico hard drive enclosures for years and they still work. Very solid. No complaints at all.

    I, saw the Sharkoon 8-Bay RAID-Station online for 320 euros…. I think that is a reasonable price but is that working the same? it is a raid station but I wonder if some of you guys have experience with it?

    Just looked on Amazon link,,,,,the amazon.com site says the max capacity is 5 x 6TB ,,,,i know that still 30TB but I see in your vid that it dose reconise 8TB drives, do you think there been any changes in the device since your vid or is amazon just mistaken?

    I have the same enclosure but about 4 years older. It does have raid options. I have had a hard drive crash and not sure which one it is nor how to change it without losing all memory on the other drives still working. Any thoughts?

    This thing is awful. It constantly disconnected itself when connected to Windows PC. I tried to use it on my WD MyCloud NAS and had the same issues. In the end I just threw it away. Best bet is to go with either a StarTech enclosure or if you're looking for a cheaper option go with the Mediasonic ProRaid or Probox enclosure, even with it's flaws at least the Mediasonic enclosures work. I'll never buy another Orico product again, everything they make is junk!

    Sounds good. But could I use this as a data repository and have raid ten on a separate unit at the same time? And how much optane would I need for this?
