It is cheap, is recognised by OSX straight out of the box (though the drive will appear as an external drive in OSX), and will give you access to Sata 3 speeds rather than the Sata 2 speeds of the internal hard drive bays on the Mac Pro.
Wow this looks great you can raid 0 4 mSata drives with one of these and they are pretty cheap and bootable as you say dang!.... hmmmm
