    These are from a huge discount sell from HSGT. We bought several new of these full of 8TB drives for the 2/3 of the market price. We needed just drives, so we sold the chassis as well.

    Looks like this only runs with 200-240V power, can anyone confirm that?

    It's 100cm long. I'd guess you need a extra deep rack for this?

    Looks good - I bought this. Yours is a better shout from a cost perspective, I might buy one of those!

    Yeah, have to find a good case for my dual xeon ( runs in a Define R5 now....) and a fitting rack mount as well xD

    EDIT: According to your link QSFP = 8436. So my connection is just QSFP to QSFP ... they offer those cables for 10-16 £ (e.g. 1.5 m mellanox 498385-B27-V-A2 QSFP to QSFP sff 8436-8436 passive copper cable)

    Xcase I suppose but they aren't cheap if you go down the pro route. Or wait for a used supermicro / chenbro to hit ebay. Trouble is they can be loud - need to tame them otherwise you get it in the ear every so often like the missus does with me :)

    Did you get it delivered and try it with SATA drives.

    I'm interesed in one or maybe two of these units. But the manual has an interesting bit in it about SATA drives.

    Now I have seen the screenshot you have attached to your first message. But did you have a chance to really try it for yourself and stresstest everything a bit? Since the manual is quite specific about SATA drives.

    Yes I read that which is why I asked for the vendor to test (which they did twice) and the testing I have done. But I have done no other test other than what I have shown above. So yes it could fall over in a heap when I actually do something or when I add a second drive - I haven't had the chance to do anything else with them (and won't have until next weekend now at the earliest). For the price I was willing to take the risk. Worst case I wait until SAS drives become cheaper :)

    Very troublesome to find an enclosure lol... Although they list 38.7" (incl. cable management) ... what is it without cable management? .... The cabinet I've been eyeballin supports up to 36.02" APC NetShelter SX 24U 600mm x 1070mm Deep Enclosure

    Yet the manual on: https://www.hgst.com/sites/default/files/resources/4U60-Storage-Enclosure-User-Guide.pdf says:

    • Height: 6.88" (174.8mm)
    • Width: 16.69" (424mm)
    • Depth: 33.5" (850mm)
    And according to that manual, it is indeed the latter ( and 38.7" if we mount that cable management thing)
