I recently tried a Fresco USB3 card, but it failed soon. By the way, all the real world transfer speed tests for external raids I looked at so far, show that esata is faster than USB3. I am happy with a Sonnet 4 ports esata card, that has served me well for about 6 years without a hassle on my 3.1 MP, and I recently bought an external 5 bays Enhance-tech/Proavio raid array with USB3, esata and FW800 ports for quickly accessible storage. However, an internal 3 HD sw raid0 runs much faster than any external array I tried, so for fast speed I chose to work with the internal raid that I synch with an external one almost daily for redundancy. The system drive is SSD, and not included in the raid0.
