CalDigit does not sell driveless; they provide "solutions".

I waited a long time for the T3, and they lost a customer here because of the delay. In the meantime Areca came out with their ARC-5026 enclosure. For $799 driveless, it is only slightly more than the T3 once you populate it with 3x4TB drives. It takes 4 drives (3.5" or 2.5"), so you have another slot, and has hardware RAID (RAID level 0, 1, 10(1E), 3, 5, 6, Single Disk or JBOD). The T3 is software RAID (using Disk Utility), in RAID 0, 1, JBOD only.

The Areca is a very nice, compact but heavy unit with excellent cooing. It has an ethernet port and embedded web interface for configuring all of the RAID options. I am quite pleased with it.

Areca is really expensive. Just get a Pegasus2 R4 driverless for that price. It's hardware RAID, and has Thunderbolt2.

Where can you find a Pegasus2 R4 driveless? I have only seen them with drives included, the smallest being 4TB for $999.

You can't. The driveless one used to be available on the Apple Store, but clearly Promise wasn't making enough money off them to keep supplying anyone with the driveless model. And I bet swapping your own hard drives voids warranty too...
