    Those HDDs are 700 quid at retail, so being generous and saying they pay just as much, that means they're charging 450 quid for a 2 drive enclosure.

    Doesn't look great to me, looks ugly, typicallyover engineered.

    That sounds about right this single drive enclosure

    https://cvp.com/product/g-tech_gt-0g...CABEgI7dfD_BwE

    Is about £200 after taking off the drive case. The LaCie includes more Thunderbolt bots for daisy chaining, USB3.1 and USBC, as well as a CF and SD reader in one box.

    This is (as the review says) not a product aimed at the general consumer, but those engaged in semi professional film making. Being able to take an SD card out of a camera at the end of a shot and back it up immediately is incredibly useful.

    That's a pretty unfortunate name though.

    also, I think it looks quite nice. But yes, quite expensive.
