MPG’s favorite OWC product is the OWC Thunderbay. MPG has switched entirely to the Thunderbay for all external storage* (except for a few special-purpose high performance OWC SSDs).
The $379 original (Thunderbolt v1) Thunderbay IV (“add your own drives” unit) offers more than ample performance for hard drives and is a good deal for most users, since most do not need Thunderbolt 2 (Thunderbay 4). One reliable Thunderbolt cable to one quiet box beats the pants off USB3.
Want big storage? The 5TB Toshiba drives are what I use now.
* Three Thunderbay 4 units with 5TB Toshiba hard drives, and two Thunderbay IV units with various 2/3/4TB drives.
