    Nothing odd about an eSATA card, common as dirt for the last 16 years. I am guessing that your Burly is an eSATA model with two eSATA cables. If so, you need a PCIe card with at least a pair of eSATA...

    Oh, now I understand. You were making a comparison between the two.

    A spinning hard drive is capable of max 200 MB/sec. SSD is capable of 450-500MB/sec. This is on a SATAIII bus which spec says is...

    If your Burly is trayless, then it doesn't have internal fans. If your Burly uses trays, then each drive has a fan and that makes a total of three fans. Depends on how your Burly was built. Two bay...

    I don't know what you mean by peculiar. eSATA means 'external SATA' and is a connector. The data transfer is SATA, which is what the drives are. Simple and robust and been around a long time (since...

    That's a USB card. You would then be needing to convert your Burly to USB.

    Going to USB is more complex without any gains in performance. Here's how the logic looks with a USB bridge in between:

    Steve,

    I'd be much more inclined to stay eSATA and stick a current PCIe card in the new MacPro to run it. Bootable, native SATA from end to end instead of converting to another bus and then back...

    Small comfort, but you are not the only one. Apple did security updates to all their supported operating systems. And there is a furor on the boards about problems caused by the latest. I'm still...

    Does look like a dust flap with that corner end on it. I'd toss a blank disk in and make another burn. You only risk making a coaster out of it.

    Yup, no recovery disk option when you make clones and end up using them. Apple's recovery disk methodology leaves a lot to be desired.

    Connecting the Burlys isn't a big deal. Just drop your PCIe card into one of the slots. No problemo.

    As far as hooking up your monitor, no problem either. At worst you will need an adapter.
