Skip that. Your machine comes with THREE extra internal SATA slots. And easy slide out trays. Just get 3 bare SATA drives, very cheap, and put them in there. Get three 2TB drives and you have 6TB ready to go! When you fill those up, THEN you can think about external options.

SATA and eSATA are the same speed.

Multiclip editing? Depends on the codec, and the amount of streams (angles). With the higher data rates, you need to look at RAIDs. You can stripe your three drives into a RAID-0, that will manage a few codecs.
