Anyone pre-order OWC miniStack STX?

miniStack STX

I need to expand external storage for my 2018 mini and could use a few more usb c ports. This looks like a good option and would be compatible with a new M1 mini. Any reason not to order one?

If you just need more USB C ports, then get a hub.

Not a recommendation, but one example:

Gotta agree with jdc, unless you need 40Gbps TB ports or the
STX's SSD-bridge* is limited to 10Gbps there are less expensive alternatives available.
* The NVMe & SSD interface speed isn't clearly stated nor is the bridge
chipset identified. TB3 alone is capable of a 5000MBps max speed.
USB-C 10Gbps tops out @ 1250MBps. SATA-III has @ a native transfer rate of 6.0 Gbps.

Not sure you can get much cheaper than $40.

isn't a pre-order just an order?
