Can these be stacked, or is heat an issue?
Asked by: Robert
The vents on the OWC 8TB Mercury Elite Pro External Hard Drive are located on the sides, and not the top of the drive, so you could potentially stack them, but dues to the shape of the drive and the nature of rotating HDDs, I would not advise it.

Asked by: Thomas
A FireWire signal cannot be sent over a USB connection, so to make use of the OWC 16TB Mercury Elite Pro External Hard Drive's FireWire daisy-chaining feature would require a FireWire host connection as well.
