    I'd get it if they did the HD copy (poor man's ghost) in them, that'd make my life easier at times.

    I dont want to have to hook it up to a PC do that, however. I just want to drop two drives in, hit copy, and do other things.

    There are some dual bay ones like that one, that will do that function, maybe a later revision?
