Hey well basically im buying a striped RAID setup for my MBP and have ordered everything except for the actual enclosure !!! Ive heard a couple things 1st - the enclosures with specifically an OXFORD chipset deliver better performance. An example is this ICY DOCK enclosure that seems quite popular: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817198031 2nd - enclosures with just an eSATA port deliver better performance than those with multiple ports such as combined eSATA & USB. Apparently this is due to the bridging interface, and performance can be reduced by up to 7% when using eSATA with a multiple port enclosure. So as i am using striped RAID i need an enclosure with 2 bays, with the only external connection being eSATA Not really big on chipsets so might be wrong about the whole OXFORD being better thing - just something i heard But yea any recommendations / experiences would be great !!! Thank you !!!!
