    It is nice to have many Virtual Machines on external storage that you can take from place to place. VMWare Fusion on my Mac at home can play the same XP VM that my VMWare workstation at work can run. Or I can take it to a friends house and run it under VMWare Player.

    It's nice to have a number of virtual machines you can take with you in a small pocket device.

    how funny, I just bought http://www.addonics.com/products/enclosures/AE25RDESU.asp (build-in raid hardware support) and 2x 500gb seagate 5400.6 disk to make my own portable device for less thann 400$ canadian, lot cheaper than the Lacie one!

    I will receive everything next MOnday so I could do my own test and I will compare them :-)

    I just port around my 1TB hdd w/ USB interface. As well as several 8GB flash drives, a couple laptops, a digital camera with a 4GB card and two spare 2GB cards, and a 16GB iPod Touch.

    I'd like to see more portable TB+ drive.

    I wonder if yours will overheat like mine did? I posted a bit about the product when I had it here: http://rtmal.blogspot.com/2008/02/mobile-raid-1-25-disks.html Look towards the end for the "02/14/2009 Update".

    It took me quite a while to find an "affordable" portable raid solution that just worked like it should.

    thanks, I will check for heat problem and if there is any, I can return it, do you remember if you had SMART information over it?

    I just got and tested the enclosure, I have big problem with my asus p5k motherboard and esata(i'm not alone and google proved it)

    in anycase, the seagate 500gb 5400.6 are quiet and run cold, maximum temperature while i was formating or while i was copying about 400gb file was about 48c

    in raid0, read speed over esata was about 90m and write speed about 85m

    Interesting name. I wonder if Buffalo did any research before launching this product. Microstation is one of the 2 most popular CAD applications used in the US (see http://www.bentley.com/en-US/Products/microstation+product+line/).
