Not needing extra FireWire ports on the computer is a good way to justify some of the "bulk".

wouldnt that slow things down tho if more than one device was being accessed? only so much bandwidth available. in this case i think i would prefer smaller vs expandabilty. cool concept tho.

The case could be much skinier but that's not what OWC was trying to do, they're just adapting their current 2.5" cases.

It might be useful to test USB 3.0, since folks who own both Mac + non-Apple machines could potentially get some great use out of this.
I hope OWC or someone else makes a roll-your-own enclosure to clone the functionality of Momentus XT, possibly with the MacBook Air SSD sticks (since they have such a small form factor). If Seagate can do it on the PCB of a drive, why not in a 2.5" external enclosure? Better yet, one that fits in the optical bay (since there's more space than necessary for a 2.5" HDD).
