Macpro early 2009, 2X2.26 Quad Core Intel Xeon, memory 16GB, Graphics NVidia GeForce GT 120 512mb, OS X 10.8.3,

I do a lot of video and have now 15 external hard drives. Half are hooked up by firewire 800 and the rest usb. Tried a quad USB 3.0 by RocketU and it didn't work well at all.

What can I hook up to this machine to work externally on hard drives for my projects?
Esata? Something I could put a lot of hard drives in it.
Hello and thanks for using

I would go to OWC I haven't had any issues and have been using them for years.

Esata would be the way to go.

They have this bundle at the link below which includes a sata card and 6TB raid drive

If you just want the card it is here also
