$10 says they have inbuilt gigabit Ethernet by the end of the year.
Anyone using one of these? What happens when the drives get corrupted?
Eg can the sync fall out of sync and you use the lot?

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
for more info on it here is a youtube video
hope this helps
