600 dollars !??
What are they smoking?

There are entire rack-server cases for 24 drives for less than that!

Only 10Gbps?!?! I have 8x 3TB laying around. I think for this price, I can grab a old computer and just make a raid for 1/3rd the price.

$599 for a box with two fans, a psu, and what is effectively 10 SATA-to-USB controllers plugged into a USB hub? Ignoring the enclosure that's about $40 in parts at retail prices.

$599 buys you a pallet of old storage servers saved from recycling, each of which has 8-12 drive capacity, oh, and each of which is also a complete server, possibly pre-populated with drives...

Yeah, the pricing seems too aggressively high.

You can buy a similar (DAS) MediaSonic ProBox 8 bay unit (eSATA / USB3) with or without RAID support for about half the price. The newer 8 bay USB 3.2 Gen 2 USB-C 10G version is about ~$200 less.

So yeah, I guess it’s nice and all but not for the price.

rather build or buy old server racks with that kind of money. Sure this is for convenience but not worth the $600 asking price.

The fact that this offers no kind of RAID controller or management is what makes the asking price ridiculous.

You can literally get a PSU and $40 of USB adapters to replicate the technical aspect of this setup, so the other $500 and change is going into a basic-looking metal box?
