Hi guys

I have recently put two bigger drives in my Mac Pro, replacing the four 640GB drives I had before.

What reasonably-priced options are there in terms of 4-bay enclosures?

cheers and thanks in advance

It really depends on what kind of speed you need. Qnap do some good enclosures :

I personally have Thunderbolt, and use a Pegasus R4:

The Promise is not a cheap solution, but it is very fast...I use it for real-time work and It eats video etc. The cheaper Amazon offerings may better suit your needs...Just add HDD's
