Don't worry they've added more, and competing offers shows offers from all time, so right now there are probably not more than 2-3. I doesn't seem like the seller will go below $40 right now though.man i should have order last night, there like 52 competing offers for 5 left
I'm using Amazon.com: CableDeconn Mini SAS 36 SFF-8087 to (4) SFF-8482 Connectors With SATA Power 1m: Computers & Accessories in my H310 and LSI MegaRAID SAS9261-8i
I don't think the dual-porting really matters in this case. It's mostly for just for multipath purposes. With dual-ported drives you can in theory get more total bandwidth with the right kind of a setup. With 8 of those SSDs you may end up having the SAS interface as the bottleneck, but 4x 6Gbit/s is in my mind good enough for such small disks.Does anyone know if these drives need both sas ports connected (since its a dual port sas drive) to get the advertise speeds?
It's because they are SAS drives. They display SMART data in a completely different format than SATA drives.Can you guys read SMART info from these drives? Using a h200 I am not seeing very much info on mine, is that because it's an OEM drive?
