Take a look at Drobo (http://www.drobo.com/) there a fantastic usb  
raid device that holds upto 4 sata drives, but unlike normal raid  
technologies (1,0,5,1+0 etc) the device is smart, and allows you to  
install a drive of any size in any of the available slots, while still  
always keeping a mirror. the drives are hot swappable, and the device  
also comes with an application for windows/mac osx that reports the  
current status of your drives, disk usage current mirror building  
states etc.

for more info on it here is a youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05yqvb5n36M&feature=related

hope this helps
