Does anyone know the hard drives SSD OWC (Other World Computing) ?
I'm looking for exchanging my RAID 5 HDD system to a solid state 4 Mini 4TB (4 x 1TB) Four-Bay Thunderbolt 2 Array.
If anyone has references, please write them here.
Thanks.

Thanks, Bob.
I'm looking if it's a good option to buy the OWC Enclosure and then 4x1TB SSD Crucial to put in the bays.
Do you have any review link?

Bob,
I´m also aiming to upgrade my current RAID system (that I got many years ago with your help).

And I´m also looking for a OWC solution: OWC ThunderBay 4 mini RAID 5 Edition

I´ve read many great reviews, but they were all performed on mac systems.
Do you know by any chance if this is going to perform as well on a windows pc ?
Is there any software that you would recommend for it (the equivalent of SoftRAID for windows) ?

Or maybe some other similar enclosure that you would recommend? (4 bays, thunderblot 2/3, SSD capable)

Any help will be much appreciated.

FYI-

I'm using two OWC Thunderbay 4's on windows and they work perfectly. Instead of softraid, I'm using Windows Storage Spaces in conjunction with Disk Management to manage two raid10's.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970

Thanks for your input Greg.

Just 2 questions:
- Can you configure a RAID 5 using Storage Spaces & Disk Management ?
- Did you run any speed test on the drives? Could you please share your results?

1. yes. I believe Raid 5 would only require Storage Spaces. I had to use Disk Management in order to create Raid10.

2. Benchmark tests using crystaldiskmark5: write/read 400MB/s.

My TB2 raids are connected to my PC through an Akitio T3T adapter since I have TB3 on my Gigabyte motherboard.

there's also other programs available for managing pc raids such as: StableBit DrivePool, FlexRAID, Unraid.
