    HGST Ultrastar He10 - 10TB @ $129.95

    Supermicro 3u 16bay 3.5" chassis with SAS2 expander

    If you don't mind the extra 1U it almost seems like a better deal then the original one on this thread. I'm a little salty.

    I grabbed one as well. Did a best offer for $300 + $50 for shipping. I didn't really need this, but I could see myself using it sooner then later.
