Why no deal on 453D? 653D goes on sale twice already. LOL
Get this one. You have dual fans and more expansion capacity. Heck, throw in a $50 SSD for cache

Anyone here have experience using these for professional level photo/video backups? I bought four 14tb's when they first went on sale in hopes to find a good enclosure for them closer to BF.

Right now I've got about 25tb of media that I want to backup in a RAID. I was thinking to buy a 6 bay and go with RAID 5. Network access isn't a must, but I wouldn't mind the feature. It's possible that I might edit off it from time to time, but it would be sitting untouched for most of the year.

Any thoughts on if this would be a good enclosure for me?
If all you want is an infrequent access, why not use a USB stack enclosure that can hold multiple disks? I got a 8 bay none RAID hot swap enclosure from Amazon for around $200. I prefer none RIAD and use them as single disks, but if you want, Windows offers something like RAID by software. Mac probably has something similar.

Exactly. I grabbed 6 and shucked them in about 10 minutes. Easy peasy.

I have a 32gb set of DDR4 coming in the next few days that I will test in this to see if it flies.
Do you have an reputable link to shuck easily?

I think that could work, I kind of assumed I needed to go with something like a NAS because they're so much more popular. I'm using Mac. Are you suggesting something more like this?

Something more like this none RAID one

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MD2L...UFbKDH4C49

or RAID

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07MD2L...UFbKDH4C49

I have something like the first one that is no longer available. As backup, i don't need them in RAID. More flexible and cost less.

Yes, very strange. I really don't care about 90% of the new features they add. I just want something to help me manage my media collection and stream to my various devices. That core functionality seems to be falling by the wayside though in favor of whatever new partnership they are pushing at the moment.
But don't you want tidal? I mean they've added Tidal. Right o the main screen before you even set up your own library, you conveniently have Tidal. If you want, you can put Tidal on your homescreen....

ManI don't think I've ever even heard anyone mention Tidal in my entire life except for some online news source talking about how they failed at something.

Now you can watch crappy TV shows and movies with ads, like the other media powerhouse crackle!

Take an old credit cards, jimmy it under the casing in the back. Run it all around the edge, you'll feel the clips pop out. Sled the case forward off the backplane...

There, you're done. It's not rocket science.

Contrary to what was said, this is not expired. I just ordered one. Shows the order is being packed in Indiana for shipment, not back ordered (yet).

NASCompares shows adding either 2X8 or 2X16 and he suggests Crucial, Kingston, or TimeTec.
