Hello,
I am working with Windows 10 Laptop that doesn't have a Thunderbolt port.

I am looking for a RAID enclosure with the following characteristics:
Diskless - Enclosure only.
5 Bay Enclosure (SATA HDD)
10gb USB-C interface (USB 3.1 Gen 2 \ USB 3.2).
• Supports at least 14TB per hard-disk
Supports RAID 5 (personally I prefer a Hardware RAID over Software, but I doubt there is).

I searched for a long time for RAID enclosure that will answer all of those needs, but 0 luck.
I also tried a Thunderbolt RAID but he didn't work with my Laptop's USB port.

Would greatly appreciate any recommendations that meet all of the characteristics I list above.

Shaki.

only 4 bay, but....QNAP TR-004
https://www.qnap.com/en-us/product/tr-004

Or any selection of NAS boxes from QNAP or Synology.

Dare I ask for the rationale for the RAID 5?
Thanks for the replies, I know TR-004, but unfortunately 4 bays don't answer by need in terms of total size. :(

I have 5 HDD with 14TB.
If I use TR-004 with Raid-5, I get 42TB and an unused 14TB , instead of 56TB - which the size I need.
That's why 5 bays are mandatory, that's also why I'm not too hopeful for a RAID-5 hardware enclosure.

if the TR-004 had 5 bays, it would have answered my needs perfectly.
