    does anybody know of 3.5 in hard drive enclosures that support 4tb hard drives? I am looking for one that does not need tools to use, & is hot swappable

    If you don't want use tools you could use the Newer Tech quad interface dock. It gives you all interface options except T-bolt. No tools need. Drives are easy to replace. Also lets you use 2.5" drives (not that 2.5" are 4TB anyway.)

    Single or dual bay, usb 3.0 or usb 2.0 & 3.0, firewire & thunderbolt would be nice, but not a necessity, preferably too less, without the need for screws.

    I found these;

    Of these, I am looking at the one with either just USB 2.0 & 3.0, or the bottom one with firewire, USB 2.0, & esata.

    I like the one with the 3 different ports, but it does not have USB 3.0, which of these would be better for me?

    should I get one with multiple ports? or go with what the future seems to be; USB 3.0?
