SABRENT 10 Bay 3.5” SATA Hard Drive Tray Less Docking Station
I purchased this a week ago with the intent to create one massive managed pool drive within Windows 11 Pro environment. I've purchased 10 Samsung QVO, 8 TB, with a total of 80 TB of SSD running.
The problem is this:
1) The 8TB Samsung SSD draws considerable more power than their smaller counterparts (e.g. 2TB, 4TB).
2) Some of the SSD seem to randomly disconnect and that messes up the managed pool.
3) It works again when I identify which one got disonnected and power that specific one again, for a little while (10-15 minutes) and then randomly disrupts again.
Obviously this is incredibly disruptive. My understanding is that this is related to some sort of power disruption. I've tried everything on the USB end to boost power (e.g. Y cables, Sabrent Powered HUB, down grading connection to a USB 2 port, etc) but the problem still remains.
My only theory now is that the Sabrent 10 bay's power supply is not sufficiente enough to handle TEN 8TB SSDs.
This is a huge problem given the sizeable investment I made.
Does anyone have a similar experience? I am extremely close to returning this monster for a refund.
