Then there is Raspberry Pi NAS SATA Adapter Stackable X828 2.5" SATA HDD/SSD Cluster Shield.
The X828 is a stackable 2.5" SATA HDD cluster expansion board focused on providing a bigger storage solution for your Raspberry Pi B/2B/3B/3B+/4B. The board is a great way to give a desktop look, as you can connect multiple external hard drivers without having them "hanging" from the USB ports of your SBC.
Knowing that our users might need more USB entrances, we added to extra USB 3.1 Gen1 ports to the X828, so the user can connect keyboards, USB sticks or even other external HDDs.
