This is a pretty darned clever idea, especially for those in the video or music business.

Ok, I can understand 4 SSD drives, but 4 2.5” HDD drives? They’re slower than regular drives already since they’re designed for laptops. I can’t see putting them into a Mac Pro as a RAID at all.

Great concept, but the cage/bracket itself is about $100 overpriced.  Bundled with a card for around $100 maybe..
