Unless the price is right, I still dont see the point of this. I currently have 2 of the smallest and slowest drives in a normal raid0 array and they are much faster than this thing.. Im pretty sure I mentioned this before, but I think they are being held by by the SATA II interface. As it is one high end drive comes pretty close to saturating the bus of a single SATA II port, running 2 off one port ensures that you are completely limited by the interface speed.
