What about having a NFS server serving (external) USB2 disks ?

I'm thinking about turning my Athlon64 barebone into a NFS server but
there is only room for one disk. So I thought I might plug extra disk via

USB2 is supposed to have a pretty nice speed nowadays but I heard about
weird buffering/syncing process that makes USB disk not (quite)
intensively useable.

Anyone ever tried that ?
Anyone knows if the USB driver on the motherboard (or on the disk rack)
makes it better depending on the brand/version ?
