Hi everyone

I have two spare identical 2,5" SSD hard drives, and I decided that I wanted to put them in a external Raid enclosure that has usb3.0, and use it with Raid0, so that I potentially can double the transfer speeds.

I remembering stumbling upon a cabinet on Amazon.co.uk, but the choices I have are very limited. I've found an enclosure from OWC on macsales.com, but since i live in Europe, the shipping would be around 30$, and that's an awful lot I think.

Are there any alternatives? Or even better, an enclosure for thunderbolt, that's not super expensive?

I have never used eBay, so I haven't considered that a possibility so far.

After taking a quick look there, i actually didn't seem to find anything...

I think that what you are looking for is a "rare beast".

Here's the closest thing I can find on eBay US for what you're looking for:

Rosewill Hard Drive External Enclosure Dual Slots for 2 x 2 5" SATA SSD HDD Wit | eBay

Maybe when eBay UK was searched…maybe the best search term wasn't used. Try "external dual SSD enclosure"…maybe eBay UK will come up with something using that search phrase.:)
