    Comments about Promise Technology SmartStor DS4600 4-Bay DAS Server:

    Using the FW-800 port to my MacBook Pro. Works great, timeout spins the drives down and trying to connect brings them up again (about 60 sec). Have had about 2 weeks, VERY happy so far!
    Wish I could adjust the timeout...
