RockPro64 Case 2x3.5" HDDs and 2x2.5 HDDs

The ODROID-XU4 has such a display - very convenient !
I would like us to have a similar display.

The case is marketed as a NAS enclosure. NAS boxes usually sit in some out-of-view location, sometimes a closet or a rack. All administration and management is accomplished from a web interface. For examples of this, check the Openmediavault documentation (or any of the off-the-shelf commercial NAS enclosures). 

These days, NAS disk storage is usually connected to SATA or faster disk controllers, like the PCIe*4 adapter from Pine64. The Odroid Cloudshell doesn't really compare for NAS applications. One would assume that when they start selling the expected Odroid-N2, they might also come out with a new and improved enclosure.

The Rockpro64 case could obviously be improved. Serviceability is an issue. replacement or upgrade of disk drives should not be a time-consuming project. I am also concerned about airflow and heat, especially with two 3.5" drives mounted inside the black brick. If you configure with eMMC board, it might also be a project to remove the eMMC chip and write a new OS to the module. Just my humble opinion.
