Black Friday bit me and I bought a few 5.25" to 2.5" drive cages. Each can hold 6-8 SSDs, just looking to fill these up with many similar SSDs if I can get a decent rate on them. Looking for 4, 6, 8, or 16 drives of the same type.

I think it was a really nice deal, warranty until 2020. I was thinking to use them to install the OS. What would you use this drives for? After checking with crystaldiskinfo that they are actually new, I think I should get a few...
After swapping out my data storage disks, I'm swapping out my VM storage for something quicker.
