well, it would have to be a 4-6 port EXTERNAL sata card, and I don't 
think you can find those in low profile pci-e as there just isn't room 
for that many connectors on the LP backplate.   you could use a 4 port 
SAS card but thats more expensive.

yes, 1 eSATA expanded to 4 drives is going to be slower than 4 dedicated 
ports.   not sure that matters enough on my home NAS
