When HB isn't available, then a target market for such disk enclosure (too far from NAS) is well known:
- budget only driven buyers (arrange list of available goods from Lowest price)
- then buy the cheaper one
- then spend hours, days and weeks on internet, because such sh.t doesn't work properly or as was expected (or hoped)

But are you really surprised?
... such CPU based on Realtek RTD1296 (ARM Cortex-A53) used in Smartwatches ...
GBU :cool: , don't hesitate to purchase two fast SSDs there
