Transition: Three 6G SSDs
Triple USB3 external drives is not appealing and would also require three USB3 ports, effectively forcing use of a USB3 hub with a cable to it and three cables fanning out to three drives. Not an exciting prospect.
Also, USB3 is not fast enough for full performance, so a Thunderbolt solution is needed: the Promise Pegasus J4 4-bay Thunderbolt enclosure.
With three SSDs housed and used as a striped RAID, there remains one bay for a 1.5
UPDATE Feb 2014: the Pegasus J4 failed to work correctly and could not be used.
