You've probably read the USB Tekspek, and perhaps your intrigue, or product interest, has lead you to look up Firewire as well. The two are similar in some respects, particularly some of the products that use the two technologies. However, Firewire has its differences, which means it has both benefits and drawback when compared to USB. This Tekspek will look at Firewire and also look at it with respect to USB.

Can this unit be used just as extra storage?

Can I fit several drives, say 4 x 3 TB to give a total of 12TB of storage, to utilise 100% for such things as a music and/or film library, running as eSATA or USB and attached to either my main pc or laptop? I don't need a backup or mirror really just raw storage.

Answer: 
Note that there is a single eSATA connector on the back of this box, which means that if you use it in JBOD mode, you MUST use an add-on controller which has port multiplier capability (preferably FIS, which is better than command-based switching). The port multiplier shares one cable and the bandwidth of a single SATA channel between 1 and 5 separate disks. Motherboard SATA sockets do NOT support port multiplication, so you can't use a SATA expansion bracket.

What RAID mode does this support,

I am looking to make a JBOD to act as a backup device for my home server (Server is running 4 x 2Tb disks as 2 x 2TB volumes using Windows Mirrored disks, so moderately safe'ish)

I have the old 4 x 1Tb disks to back up onto, would be easier if it was a simple RAID so the 4 x 1Tb were addressable as single 4Tb space, but with 4Tb disks coming in at lower prices, I currently use a second home server as the backup device, but this could be neater and use less electricity if it works,
