Just found this little device....

Looks to me like this could be used, in conjunction with some spare parts one may have laying around(psu, case, etc.), to do a "roll your own" esata raid array to be used with an HR20. All for only $169 plus shipping.

Thoughts?

Yeah "Only"....
As opposed to 500, or more, bucks for a pre-built 5 bay enclosure.

This looks exciting. It would be nice to hear from someone that would try this out in a RAID-5 configurationon an HR-20. Redundancy+capacity for HD recordings. I would like that.
