    OK, so its not a "28TB HDD".
    It is 2x 14TB, in RAID 0 or JBOD config.

    Had to go to BHPV to actually discover how many physical drives are used here.
    The answer is 2.

    External enclosure with two 14TB drives in RAID 0 by default? Does it come with a bowl of water to sit this enclosure in to keep it cool and improve data reliability even further?

    Even at this price, it's still incredibly expensive. You can buy three WD 14TB external drives for $40 less than the price of this two drive enclosure.

    I just buy whatever is cheapest in $/TB when I shop for hard drives.

    Has to be 2 ... There are no 7 TB drives .. and 28 is not dividable by 3 or 5 or 6

    Yes, I know.
    2 bay, no problem.
    My point was....that detail should be prominent in a listing or write up.

    Not deceiving as in "28TB HDD".
