    Can I daisy-chain these two?
    My 500 GB eHDD is nearly out of space. I am considering a NAS with a mirror or another eHDD.

    Can I daisy chain any kind of USB eHDD? I have a Lacie Quadra drive and am considering a Lacie Grand.

    No, you can't daisy-chain USB. You can however use a powered USB2 hub. For daisy-chaining you need firewire connectivity. FW is superior for external devices anyway.
