how many hours on the SAS drives? Approximately?
I had them powered on 24/7 for about 2 years and then mostly stored for 3 years. I purchased them all new and sealed approximately 5 years ago. All in good working condition.

EDIT: this is in regards to the 4TB drives. the 3TB drive was sealed new and opened to test

I've got a D2700 I'll be getting rid of. I got it for a project 2 years ago used, and went with the d2600 instead. Would that work for you?

That appears to be for 2.5" drives when I'm looking for 3.5" and do HPE enclosures work with non-HP RAID cards and drives?

yes, it is for 2.5 drives... I went with 3.5 because they were easier to get a hold of than the 2.5... I've only used them with my dl380 G6 and dl380 G8 so far...didn't have them when I was running my Dell R710 (before I went HP), so unsure about dell usage with them. I've got 3 of the D2600 and a xyratex hb-1235 right now, but trying to decide if I want to get another d2600, or go with the dl360g8 service processor and 2x - m6720 appliances...if I go with 6720 and SP, then I'll have 3x d2600 and a xyratex to get rid of, if not, then I'll have an SP and 2x m6720 appliances to get rid of...decisions...decisions...lol

I have a Lenovo SA120 (12x3.5") that I'll be putting up for sale soon. Would that be of interest to you? I'm out in Leesburg area.

I'll take the items heading to recycling if no one ends up getting them--I hate to see working hardware get broken down. :eek:

Does it support non-lenovo branded drives and RAID cards? Also, does it include caddies? If the answer is yes to both then I'm interested and please PM me with your asking price. Thanks.

Yes to both. I have a mix of HGST and WD SATA drives that I've used in it. The SAS ports on the back take standard SFF-8088 cables that I've connected to various Supermicro SAS controllers and LSI cards. All 12 bays are ready to accept drives. Pretty much plug and play! Shouldn't be any surprises. PM incoming.

updated post with items sold on reddit. would like to sell the 8TB drives ASAP

after some thought I'd like to consider the cost of getting a R520 or R720 chassis and adding parts I have already to act as the storage server instead of adding an enclosure to my R320.

What I switched to that I've been very happy with from The Server Store (I think I just emailed them):
  • 4U Supermicro with no system board
  • BPN-SAS2-846EL1 Backplane
  • 2x PWS-920P-SQ Power supplies
  • $399 plus shipping
To that I added some misc cables and quieter fans, plus my Supermicro board running FreeNAS. Very nice setup for up to 24x SATA drives (SAS too, but I've not tested that).

The price of used R720 units is falling pretty fast, so I think you'd be in good shape to wait a bit until they bottom and then get a barebone R720 for cheap, swap over some of your parts from the R320 and then sell off the R320. The net cost should only be about $200-250 doing it that way. :)

updated post with more items sold on reddit. looking to move the 8TB drives ASAP so I can buy a 14TB drive from another user here. please feel free to make an offer! also changed my WTB to a barebones or low-spec R520

What I switched to that I've been very happy with from The Server Store (I think I just emailed them):
  • 4U Supermicro with no system board
  • BPN-SAS2-846EL1 Backplane

when a barebones R520 is around $200 it doesn't make sense to buy this unless I'd actually use the 24 bays, but thanks for the idea. using 10TB drives takes a lot longer to fill up 8 than when I had 4TBs. they also quoted $400 for barebones R720xd which is still more than I'd like to do a chassis swap for

In the last few weeks I have seen both an R720 16SFF barebone and R720xd LFF empty shell (just chassis + 12LFF backplane) listed at $100 each with shipping included. Both listings (multiple units each) have been sold out within hours - so it is not the regular price just yet. But it is getting there.
