Any experience with Syba enclosures?

Looking at this as I'm getting tired of multiple drive enclosures all around the desk with their power and data cables:

Sure, I'd love to get the sponsor's 8-bay Thunderbolt model, but it's a little out of the current price range...

8 bays? 8 drives? thats a lot of pRon. =) How much data? maybe time to consolidate?

TBolt is overkill for spinny drives. Even my fast RAID 0 with 2 7200 RPM drives peaks about 300 MBs

I think their stuff is decent, id recommend them to my clients.

Assuming the brand was not bought up by a company selling typical chinesium slough, it's been around for maybe 15 (25?) years.

I've owned a few of their products, no issues.
Linked product has ASMedia chipsets, that's good but they're only USB 3.0.
ASMedia has 3.1g2 chips so maybe Syba has some new enclosures in the works?

btw, SYBA is a Chinese biz & started about 19 years ago. They own several brands
including 'IO Crest'. iirc, they're actually based in HK.

I just clocked 1.3GB/s r/w to a TB RAID this afternoon. 12 spinny drives in RAID 6 config.

Amazing... Ive never seen such a thing, SAS drives? Or 10000 RPM?

Ive long considered adding a drive to my 0 setup and making it a 5... I was under the impression 6 was slower.

However, with NVMe prices coming down, and me needing less long term storage... Im prob going to go all NVMe.

I just don't need TBs upon TBs of space anymore. 1 TB for boot, and 2 TB for working files is more than fine.

SATA. 7200RPM. WD Ultrastar.

RAID5 and RAID6 are slower than a basic stripe, but as you stack more drives the difference becomes trivial.

SSD would faster, but the cost for similar capacity and redundancy is still prohibitive.
