Hardware suggestions for on set off-loading and home editing?

I just upgraded a few elements of my PC and I'm wondering if you guys have suggestions on how to set up my existing SSDs/ if I should get anything new.

My typical workflow will be:

  • Recording on URSA Mini Pro to 480GB SSDs
  • Either traveling home and offloading the footage on my desktop OR
  • Offloading footage on set (ideally to two places at the same time)

Current equipment: I5 8600k (new)

Z370 gigabyte aorus gaming 5 Mobo (new)

16gb ddr4 3200mhz ram (planning on adding more)

Gtx 1060

2x Samsung 250gb 860 Evo SSDs

2x WD Green 250gb SSDs

1x barricuda pro 4TB HDD

USB 3.0 Dual SSD/HDD dock

Some USB 3.0 Lacie/WD external HDDs and a 2014 Macbook 15 Inch for on-set (2 thunderbolt ports and 2 USB3.0 ports)

So with all that out of the way, what would you do in my situation? I could set up the SATA SSDs in Raid 0 and use it just as a Media drive (original files backed up in 2 places) and get an M.2 SSD for OS/Project files? Or sell some of the SSDs and replace them with M.2 drives (I have 3 M.2 slots on the mobo). Portable SSD Raid for fast on-set offloading?? Stick to thunderbolt/USB3 drives for on set offloading and live with the 100-150mbps transfer rate? I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the options, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
