Philip

Check out DigiLloyd's new "RAID 6" External Enclosure.

The mini has 1.5 G SATA speed
and the Mac Pro has 3 G SATA speed.
How about a RAID 6 Enclosure with
6 G SATA speed for your Mac Pro.

Its a little pricey but something to
think about for future Hard Disc
expansion.

Philip might be able to buy the RAID Card
and use it with the External Enclosure he
already has. Then he'd be in High Cotton.

Might work!

So Philip,
Is it the PCIe card that controls the type of RAID?
Without the card the Rosewill is just a big box?
Right?
Its the card that does everything communication wise
an the Rosewill just holds the Hard Drives so the card
can work its RAID magic. Right?

Can the Rosewill hold less than 8 Drives and you just
add Drives as needed? If thats the case then that would
be a great deal because you could just add hard Drives
as your need grows and the price is in the ball park of an
OWC Qx2 enclosure that only holds 4 Hard Drives.

Its kind of a shame it only works with a Mac Pro.

you got it. the pci e cards are what do the trick. the rosewill can use 1 or 2 or 3 up to 8 hdds. It has 2 esata jacks you could hook 2 computers to it each to 1 esata jack each esata jack handles 4 hdds. but if you do no raid you have 8 separte hdds this is also nice . you could add one a ssd at a time. each wold be stand alone and very fast. think 600gb 3rd gen intel ssds for feb 2011. add 1 per month. each and every one is a stand alone jbod.
