I predict that you'll be happier with SATA than with USB for this
deployment.  USB entails an additional translation layer, which is
why you lose things like SMART datastreams, whereas eSATA simply
extends the native mass-storage bus.  Also, you should find that
external SATA is more reliable and has fewer sources of flakiness and
has fewer speed limitations in real-world situations.
