TerraMaster D5 Hybrid Storage Enclosure: Supports 2 Hard Drives and 3 SSDs

The TerraMaster D5 Hybrid is a USB enclosure that supports up to two hard drives and three NVMe SSDs, providing a combined total of up to 68TB of storage.

The D5 Hybrid has space for two 3.5 or 2.5-inch hard drives with storage capacities of up to 22TB each, as well as three M.2 2280 slots for NVMe SSDs of up to 8TB each. This allows users to take advantage of the higher data transfer speeds of SSDs for “hot” storage that requires frequent access, while using the hard drives for archival or “cold” storage of less frequently used data.

It’s important to note that the data transfer speeds are limited by the USB 3.2 Gen 2 (10 Gbps) connections supported by the enclosure, which means that the maximum transfer speed will be 980MB/s regardless of the SSDs used.

The enclosure supports RAID 0 for maximum storage capacity, but it does not offer any redundancy. It also supports RAID 1 mirroring for redundant data, JBOD, or single disk modes.

The D5 Hybrid measures 222 x 154 x 119mm and contains acoustic materials to reduce noise. The package includes a 40W power supply, and the company states that a fully loaded enclosure with hard drives and SSDs will consume up to 30 watts under heavy load or 10 watts while idle.

The TerraMaster D5 Hybrid is currently available for purchase for $220 from TerraMaster
