Serial ATA controller (SATA) Type of connector SATA Port. Thin Cable. HD's are hot swapable. Max speed is 150MB/s data transphere. Requires a SATA HD.

Both are capable of setting up 2 or more HD's in a RAID config.
Technically he's not spekaing of a SATA RAID controller, so the SATA disk can't be in a RAID-array. Most mobo's and external controller have RAID support though...

It's suggested u buy a special drive bay for hotswapping HDD's. Bit difficult opening & unscrewing your HDD @ run time....
