Another option would be to use a 5.25" to 4 * 2.5" SAS/SATA backplane like the CRS-S1040-SAS. I use one with a raid 0 made of 4 SSD's and one with a raid 5 of 4 WD VelociRaptor 600 GB drives attached to a raid card.
Advantages:
- VelociRaports are less expensive than SAS or SCSI drives and just as fast.
- 4 drives in the space for 1 5.25" drive
- accessible without opening the case
- one 4-pin power plug for 4 drives
- 2 fans in the backplane to cool the drives

On the last page, under "Capacity Segment". You said "Three gigabyte capacity per drive was reached". I think that you meant to say "three terabytes".
