I've reached the point where I now have some NVMEs hitting the spare parts bin with plenty of life on them that are faster than 2.5" SSDs, and I'd like to get some use out of them. Does anyone make the equivalent of a 4 bay NAS you can just JBOD a few m.2 NVME drives? Or even just a multi drive USB enclosure? Best I've found is the OWC 4 bay enclosure for ~$250, a rocketek two bay USB enclosure for $130, a sabrent two bay usb enclosure for $120, and a ********** hot swappable open air two slot USB thing for $140.

I'm guessing I'm SOL, but figured I'd ask the [H] hive mind.

Alternative - pick up a cheap mobo and 120G SSD for boot, then use them in that. Especially if it's an older HEDT setup that can take a 4x card - or any ATX board with the single-slot M2 adapters.

Other than size, that'd probably be the sane thing to do if I was intent on doing a NVME nas seriously at this point. At this point, I'll probably just snag another single external enclosure and hang one off my mesh router(s).
