    Recommendations for a multiple m.2 PCI-E AIC

    I need to get a multi m.2 PCI-E add-in card. It can just be multiple m.2 slots or something more advanced and offer hardware RAID and other features. It just depends on what is offered for the price. Does anyone own any of these or have experience/knowledge on them and recommendations? Thanks

    Is this cable proprietary or can I get a new one?

    I have this laptop battery pack and the cable broke. Is it proprietary or can I get a new one? The batteries are still good and strong so it sucks if I have to throw it out and buy a new one. It is a Turcom M9000.

    Which 18TB hardrive should I get?

    I want to upgrade my SnapRAID server parity drives to 18TB and use the 6TB drives that I have now as a striped or JBOD logical 18TB drive for my SnapRAID server. So I'll have 3-4 18TB parity drives for 3-4 18TB Data drives. I am leaning towards just striping them but debating on if the added...
