Yes, it's a daft fault. But I can see how it got missed - they probably weren't looking for it. Hopefully that will change.
I’ve got four external USB drives (one SSD, three hard drives) via a powered hub, with sample libraries, Komplete, etc. on a 2012 Mac Mini. No problem at all with that setup.
Just checked on Amazon a Samsung 2TB thunderbolt external SSD costs £863!!
