Anyone have experience with esata drives and port multipliers?
I have a pile of 250 GB and 300 GB IDE drives, and I've been toying with
the idea of converting them to SATA, then sticking them into an
enclosure, and plugging the whole mess into an esata port on my server.
Bingo, an extra 750 GB of storage (if I do RAID-5) or 1.1 TB if I do LVM.
So far, I've found this:
They all use the same SIL chipset for the multiplier.
Then use one of these for each drive:
The enclosure I have. So for something like $130, I can add about 1 TB
to my system. Not a bad deal - if it works.
