I’ve owned a few of their RAID enclosures in the past and found them to be the most reliable and well supported enclosures I’ve owned, so just curious!

Wouldn't say that, its more like a Apple product, sure you overpay, but at least you know it's reliable

I'm not even sure you're overpaying... Most USB 3.1 Enclosures are ~$40 on newegg. Didn't notice any 3.2 enclosures. OWC's is $50.

Most of the 3.1 externals on newegg that include a 8TB drive are $250-300, while OWC is selling them for $279.
