I'm hopeful I've come to a conclusion now but am I right in saying that by purchasing a seagate desktop thunderbolt adapter samsung 840 pro ssd and then daisy chaining a 1tb Lacie rugged thunderbolt i could create a fusion drive?

Plus does anyone know of any threads which state read/write of samsung 840 when connected to the DESK version thunderbolt adapter?

From what I've heard Samsung 840 pro ssd works a lot faster with thunderbolt but I really need to find out what speeds it can get on a desktop adapter though ...

You would not be able to create a "fusion" drive by using an external SSD. Apple uses some tricks internally on the iMacs to make that work, and you won't be able to duplicate it via external interfaces, especially since the OS will only see the two drives independently of each other.
