Would be great if you could plug 1 drive into another, like SCSI devices.

 

At least the power supply should have a Y cable, so you don't need to keep finding plugs each time you buy another drive.

 

PLEASE consider this, it would only add pennys to the design and encourage people to stick with WD drives

you have USB 3.0 hubs for that :smileywink:

that way you can connectt so many external drives just like a eSATA portmultiplier

given the fact that i dont think there is many SATA>USB chipsets that supports two USB ports

and they figured, most people buy a USB hub when they run out of ports, so why not save some bucks
