yea click3x got one of these for better or worse (The XRAID).  they do look nice...
altho the management utilites kinda are lacking and obviously we were
forced to use HFS+...ouch.  from a hardware perspective the cases are pretty
nice, altho I still am not convinced in with SATA tech. yet.  i followed the 
developments of the XSan FS pretty closely, and it does look interesting.  
altho in hindsight i'd probably not go with one of these guy's again, 
even with the XSan FS.  what's interesting is when we were trying to get an
XRAID from apple they didn't give us the time of day...and now here they are 
trying to push this as a video solution.  as far as the enterprise buzz word...
while I'm sure it's possible (anything is) i would not bet the company data
on it just yet, but that goes for any new new tech.
