I've been looking at options for external storage and I quite like the idea of plug hard drives in as needed like you can with Thermaltake's Blacx. The USB 2 speed limit doesn't really concern me but I'm a bit puzzled by the 1 TB limit to the disks it will work with.
It seems to me that it should work with any SATA compatible disk. So why the limit? Is this perhaps a purely artificial limit so they can sell us a new unit in a few years (the price per gigabyte sweet spot is already moving to 1.5 TB)
