Wow, I demo'd the one I use at the #2013Meetup -- still working great plugged into my N54L running WHS2011

Well, hopefully they're better than the MediaSonic ProBOX's ...... I'm sick of those already. :(

Since this doesn't come with a raid card I was thinking that software raid might be a good fit for this box. Would it work with storage spaces? I am still trying to wrap my head around port multipliers.

I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work with Storage Spaces.  I have only used it with Stablebit Drivepool and as a place to keep spares that aren't in the Drivepool and be able to test/check out with Stablebit Scanner.

 

The one thing I would note is that the eSATA cable can become "dislodged" if accidently bumped -- making it pretty exciting when losing more than 1 drive from my Drivepool!!  (it generates a flurry of emails from HAL-9000, my WHS2011)

Yeah, the eSATA connector doesn't live up to its billing, which was that it's designed to stay securely in place; that's why it's different from a normal SATA connector :P
