OWC ThunderBay 4 - Thunderbolt 2 with SoftRAID. A perfect gift for the photographer or videographer in the family who needs more space to store their files using a fast, flexible RAID. Important: one of the two thunderbolt ports on this was accidentally broken by a trip on the cord, so it can only operate at the end of the thunderbolt daisy chain with a single working Thunderbolt 2 port. This is the OWC Thunderbay 4 - the Thunderbolt 2 version that maxes out at 20gbps.

In benchmarks with four spinning hard drives, this was doing regularly over 600MB/s attached to an iMac 2014 (when the drives are not full - all spinning drives slow down as you fill them up) with 5000rpm drives. We had it configured with 4x8TB drives from Seagate and Western Digital (drives not included), using RAID5 for redundancy in case of a drive failure.

This produced a 24TB volume for mount on the desktop. It could be split into smaller volumes if desired, or can be used as "just a bundle of individual disks" (JBOD), or in one of the other raid modes. This comes with a license code for Softraid XT for MacOS, so you can use it as a full RAID on the Mac. RAID 0, 1, 4, 5, 1+0. Or as a JBOD if you prefer.

Softraid is easy to use and set up, and is very fast. On the OWC website it says the unit is compatible with Windows, but I havent tested that. All four drive slots were tested with a 3TB drive immediately before this listing was made, attached to an iMac 2014 with Thunderbolt 2. The drive mounted and drive could be read for each slot.

It had been in storage for six months, so I made sure its working before sending it out. This is the FULL XT version, not LITE - license code is printed on a label on the bottom of the drive case. 13 L x 8.5D x 10 H (Original Box).

9.5L x 5D x 7H (actual device). Let me know if you have questions.
