I'm looking for recommendations for a multiple drive external enclosure.

Minimum requirements:
SATA internal interface
Capacity of 2 drives
USB external interface
Linux supported
JBOD mode

Highly desired:
3-5 drive capacity

Nice, but could live without:
eSATA external interface in addition to USB
RAID 5

The AMS DS-2340 and DS-2350 have caught my attention but, other than Newegg review I don't know anything about them.

Any other recommendations?

Thanks for the help!

Thank you for the feedback.

My server is an old laptop with a broken screen. I have the drives, I have the computer, I just need something to put the drives in to attach to the computer!
