    Got one of these on the way and I'm just curious what you think of it.

    I don't have that particular model but I really don't like G-Techs RMA. They took about a month to get my G-Raid Mini (Non SSD Non eSATA) back to me after they claimed a 7 to 10 day turn around.

    Just don't break it and you'll do all right. That thing seems pretty expensive; I hope you get better treatment than I do for dropping that much change.

    Do you think it's still expensive at $450 USD?

    Also, 256 is Raid 1 and not Raid 0 capacity right?

    ie. 2x128 and not 2x256 right?

    Obviously its raid 0. Nobody can afford to ship two 256GB SSDs for $450.

    If eSata is the choice which card other than Sonnet Temp Pro works then?

    I'm buying the 256 gb product I just don't know if the sizes are quoted on raid 0 or raid 1 since this is a deeply discounted product as g-tech now hitachi no longer sell it

    update: got confirmation that it's the 2x128 gb version of the product.

    I wonder if it's still a good deal at $450.

    I suspect that you can swap out the drives with high capacity drives and still make use of the enclosure and raid controller.
