People would say, paying so much for a DAS, why not just grab a NAS.
NAS and DAS serve different purposes. If you're going to attach the device directly to a client pc via usb 3.0 (and w/o the need of those extra features provided by NAS device), it seems DAS is the goal. In addition, DAS is also good for backup purpose.
Some of the multi-bay external hdd enclosures for your reference:
TS-431 is good. And I've no problem using it as a 'docking' ... I did think of doing so . Btw, you cannot just connect it to your PC via USB 3.0 (I suppose you know that), a router/giga switch is still required.
One of the reasons why I'm still a fan of DAS is the support of NTFS, which is fully compatible (read/write) in Windows and NAS environments. For instance, today I'm using it with my Win client pc, next week I may plug it into the NAS as an ext storage device.
ps. Currently I've a 2-bay DAS and two 2-bay dockings (one of it was bought almost 10 yrs ago, it still works!). All are Unitek products.
