I'm going to upgrade the whole thing to a CoolDrives 8 Bay external, and upgrade all of the disks to 400Gb within the next 6 months or so.
I had never heard of cooldrives, so I looked them up. It looks like they have some good external hdd solutions. I'm guessing that you are pretty happy with them if you plan on upgrading to the 8 bay model.

Here is a link to their site for anyone who may be interested.
