The 2019 Mac Pro is great in a whole host of ways, not least the fact that you can add your own storage. Anyone wanting to really go all-in on SSD storage will need something to mount their drives with, though. That's where the TransIntl The Pro Caddy V comes into its own.
Capable of housing up to ten 2.5-inch drives, this thing certainly looks impressive and it shouldn't be out of place inside that Mac Pro. Especially when it's filled with all that gorgeous, fast SSD storage. You'll need an expansion card with the cabling required to connect and power all these things, however.
- Elegant design will blend in seamlessly in your new Mac Pro 2019.
- Ships with custom data and power cables
- The internal drives saves desk space and cable clutter.
- Drives are sold separately, offering flexibility of installing your own drives.
- Buy new drives of your Choice of Brand and Capacity
The mount starts at $299.99 on its own, but you can configure it with either Samsung or Tiger drives right from the vendor if that's your thing. Otherwise, add your own drives, and away you go!

Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
So fully kitted out with 10 8TB Samsung SSD's and RAID Adapter runs about just shy of 11 Grand. I know there are people that can and do have a reason to use that. That said OUCH!
