while it's not raid. I would also consider getting an IO Safe. Pretty much the toughest external drive encolsure you can get.
and now for something completely different

If you wanted to set up your own server and wanted to run a software raid that allows you to customize damn nearly everything with respect to raid you could run FlexRaid. It's a software based raid where you can run it as raid 0, raid 1, raid 5, or intermixed, without the penalty of running multiple different hard drive sizes at the same time. I have been using it on my home server for probably 8 months and love it.

Building my own server is overkill. Nonetheless, I'll consider FlexRaid when I need to do software raid in the future.
