How slow you talking? Did you do any measurements?

I do agree with FT, even with 4 bays inside, external drives are easily moved and can be used with other systems.

I have never tried this, but since you have a Mac Pro, is there not a Spare SATA port on the logic board? If so, I would get an E-SATA bracket and use the drives E-SATA which BLOWS down any USB anyway!
As I remember the USB 3.0 moved 1.93 GB's per min and the F/W 800 did right at 2.0 per min on an 80GB CCC. But I may check again,
