well, i have the DS916+ 4bay with 4 4tb drives in raid 5 and have just ordered a ds1819 8 bay enclosure with 4 12tb drives for now, i went with the 1819 because i can then increase the array when needed without having to buy either a new enclosure or replace the current drives and then have them sit around wasted :) i do highly rate the 916 never had a problem with it and when one drive died it rebuilt the array quite quickly.
