    Clever idea. And very useful. But about $200 too expensive.

    Interesting - what would be applications for this - adding additional SSD?

    Eh, more so probably to use proprietary PCI interface cards. Like a video editing suite, audio setup, etc.

    What exactly would make the PCI interface proprietary?

    I didn't mean the interface itself. Rather the functions of the specific cards that you would use with it. Like a proprietary HD camera decoder for example.

    So this wouldn't be for a video card, it would be more for like a USB expansion card or sound card? I don't see the point entirely

    They have a list of supported PCIe cards and they include things like fibre channel, RAID, 4 port eSATA etc...
