Seems like a neat little setup, I'd love to get one.

I had never heard of SATA port multiplication either.

As usual USB is deathly slow, it would be nice if it was 139 and eSATA vs USB but you can't always get what you want eh?



+1 on the review Compxpert!

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

If its a device to hold 2 drives why not have 2 esata ports and not have to worry about the port multiplier complications?

Some people are like slinkies - not really good for anything but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
