I'm thinking in buying an Icy Dock MB561US-4SB-1 Quad Bay eSATA anyone has any experience with these? Connected to my onboard RAID(not sure about performance!?) Now my HDD system is: 160GB WD Raptor 10k RPMS SATA2 (system) + 1TB normal storage + NAS. I want to add the RAID + another drive to save my rendered files. Toughts please? thanks Pedro More about : buying raid setup video WyomingKnott a c 316 G Storage April 6, 2011 2:42:37 PM Take a look at FireWire2's recommendation in this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tom...
