Nice, but priced about 2x what I'd be willing to pay for it.

Forget it, no SCSI ports, won't connect to the PM8100 without a nubus TB3 card.

I wonder if the JBOD function is done with one cable for multiple drives.

I think the math is about right.

A *good* AL RAID case -- $150 on the low side. $180 for synology or other brand name. Hub with extra USB A/C port + Ethernet + HDMI + card reader, maybe $80. But 2 devices, not 1.

So an extra $50 or so for an all in one, + smaller + 3 year warranty.

Add your own drives.

If it held at least 1 more drive, and could do Raid5, I would be in in a heartbeat!

That's a Power User or business case, and as such, not an unreasonable price. That plus a couple of drives is about 1/4 of one wedding job. Tax write-off too.

Can it be an iTunes and movie server like the Synology?
