Cool Let me know how it works out for you. It really is a good plug it up and forget it thing.

I just now started putting the 2 TB's in it because I have filled the case up. I'm going to stick one more 2 Tb in the 3.5 external for the floppy. Then I'ma going to start replacing the other smaller drives with 2 Tb drives.

Thats another cool thing about it. Since there is no raid it offers simple redundant storage (without RAID complexity) and gives you the ability of adding (and removing) drives from the storage pool, so you can expand the storage capacity really easily, while still have redundancy in the data
