I wanted to know how the multidrive hotswap enclosures are set up. Is there just one connection that is then split between all the drives? Even for the 8 drive enclosure?

There is a picture of the back of the single bay enclosure, 2 firewire 800 ports and 1 USB. Is that like the 2, 4, 8 drive enclosures?

Each bridge has 2 drives on it. A 4 bay has 2 bridges, an 8 bay has 4 bridge.

We include a 1 foot jumper cable to chain the bridges together on the back. Connect one bridge only to your computer's FW port with the included 6 foot cable.

Is March still the expected ship for the 2 drive enclosures?
