Having a little difficulty justifying full SSDs for home VM usage. Have you tried running these as cache drives for SATA/SAS?
No, I have a separate FreeNAS box for "slow" storage. My network is 40GbE and I want to see how RDMA + Ceph performs. Not sure how I can justify it other than this is my hobby and it is fun to play.

@josh Have you checked he doesn't have 70 pcs left? I know before I placed my order he had approx 200 pcs left.

Looks like he entered more inventory. 114 available. 7 sold since the new price.

Makes 300 total drives @ 20 drives per box - makes me think he purchased a lot of 15 boxes.

@awedio I like your 4 node cluster idea - but aww shucks blaming little ole me? HAHA. I'm happy to that this turned into a great deal for folks and happy to contribute back.

I bought 5 of that 7. Didn't know how many he had left and didn't want to risk it. After I figured out the remaining quantity I feel there's no more rush so I'll just wait till he gets bored of the new price.

These things are addicting for sure (trust me I went through a hussl phase, then a husmm phase)...for all us slummin' it up and not all in on NVMe just yet I've always said hard to beat these tanks.

You guys are next level though, 70 devs at a time...10 spares, I've yet to have one fail on me (sampling size of 30-40 hussl/husmm over the years). Just checked my husmm1620 ZIL device backing my 4 disk/raidz humm1680 AFA VM pool...108TB over probably 18-24 months on the writes, reads barely touched. Hehe, DO YOUR JOB lil' lady, 3.6PB endurance on the 200gb models, she's just getting started!

When I grow up, I want to be like some guys I know on this forum, with their multi-node all NVMe clusters!
Until then these SAS3 drives will have to do!

Oh you won't hear me try to argue against that. Ya remember a couple yrs back when I posted the $99 400Gb hussl's and a ton of folks went nuts/were mind blown...well buddy ya'll just 'one up'ed' me :p

Insane that newer gen hgst sas3 v.s. sas2 ssd devs are almost 1/2 that cost now w/ this deal...wont last long, nothing nice ever does round' these parts bwahahaha

Good job/nice work!
