    I'm curious as to how they've managed to achieve "Up to" 1000MB/s with only 4 drives.

    In practice I've found that I can get 7200rpm drives to do large sequential read speeds of up to 200MB/s (ish). With 4 drives in RAID 0 that could be 800MB/s. So, unless HDDs have gotten much faster in the last year, they must be doing some very clever stuff to overcome that shortfall.

    I dunno, but colour me intrigued. I'd be surprised if benchmarks showed sustained 1000MB/s speeds, even for giant file transfers.

    WD claim 255MB/sec on their 12TB drives: http://www.storagereview.com/wd_gold..._now_available

    Sounds bold but believable, if someone wants to buy me 4 drives I would be happy to test that

    So you can't buy them empty?

    Do they offer JBOD?

    OWC Thunderbay 4 mini Enclosure £400 bare, stick in some dries and I bet it will come out cheaper and just as quick.
