    I have an 8-drive RAID for video work, and someone just gave me 4 more of the exact same drive, so I want to add the drives to the RAID and make it a 12-drive RAID. I use a Port Multiplier setup with a software RAID, and I have a free eSATA port on my card, so I'd like to send a single cable to a 4-bay PM box that only needs JBOD, no hardware RAID.

    I was thinking about this one:

    I'm all on SATAII, so no need for a SATAIII setup.

    Any thoughts?

    I go with tray-less and NSS (no scratch SATA) connection:
