Looking to put together an expander for my Gateway. I have done my research and know that for a value for money multi terrabyte expander people have been sucessfull with enclosures from Vantec and I intend to start my build with that brand unless someone has any other suggestion.

 

What I initialy planned was to use the following:

 

Vantec NextStar MX NST-400MX-SR

Paired with 2 3TB HD (none green)

 

A newer version of the same enclosure has been released but have read in other forums that these are not working as well as the SR

Vanter NexStar MX NST-400MX-S3R

http://www.vantecusa.com/en/product/view_detail/277

 

Recently theVantec enclosure which is capable of 4 3TB HD which is priced the same as those above has become available and would want to know if anyone has had experience with this enclosure working with the Gateway.

Vantec NexStar HX4 NST640SU3-BK

Please keep in mind for those looking to do the same is that because this is a 3rd party product there will be limited support from Shaw with regards to troubleshooting this.
