    No such thing exists. While the FW800 unit is possible because FireWire is capable of delivering 40W of power over the FireWire bus. Thunderbolt only delivers 10W.

    Hm, that's interesting! But I wasn't excited for long:

    Such a shame....

    You just expect too much.

    You can fit 2 x 9.5mm high 2TB drives in it. That should be enough.

    I need 4TB (or even 5TB with Seagate ST5000LM000) of effective capacity with RAID1, so 15mm drives are my only options.
