    Im torn as well since i already have the 208v ups so it is plug n play for me. I just dont "need" it at the moment. Maybe ill lowball offer and see what happens. If i didnt just lose money in vegas on vacation I'd do it. Darn craps

    I'm the one actually selling these jbods in the US, if anyone bought any with the idea of using them on 110v I wanted to apologize. "I was told 110v would work", I only found out today after I tried it myself... 110v does not work. You'll probably want to contact me and get that sorted out, if you need to.

    I also found a couple smoking deals for the same empty enclosures on a few webstores... 8,999.99 to 13,999.99. But we/I will take $300 and $99 per until we run out. Maybe I can answer a few questions here (please double check me, I've a bit to learn yet)

    Thanks Jeff.

    Hmm... So if I keep this thing I'll need a 208v UPS for it. Are there any of those that are reasonably priced?

    I picked up a eaton 5px3000i for $250 shipped off ebay. Some of the 208v-240v ups's go cheap due to low demand. Got a 10000va apc for free off craigslist but needs $300 in batteries. Go check out craigslist in your area first

    May try to pick this up if the seller will drop the price a bit for a local pick-up. Should I be concerned a put the amp rating on the output though? I know very little about 240v but from what i understand the amp requirements are lower than on 120v. Will this be enough amps though? Likely only this JBOD to start but would be nice to allow my 2U Supermicro server as well.

    Double the voltage, halve the amperage required so 10amps of 240 is like 20 amps of 120. My outlet is 20 amps. If you read the manual for the ups it will tell you normally what to wire it for. Also 240v is 2% more efficient so you get a smidge less power usage off the bat

    I assumed it was 90lbs, when I first put up the ad. When its all boxed up it weighs 140. That's original packaging, plus a cardboard pallet for additional protection.

    140lbs

    @Jeff Kaminsky

    Can you please point out which QSFP -> SFF-8644 cables you've tested with this enclosure?

    I already ordered some but my experience with SAS cables has been that they're not all the same...

    Thanks for your help.

    @raileon did you get yours yet? I want to know the depth in-rack w/o cable management as well.

    This is a complete side question, but those of you that are around enterprise equipment all the time, are these chassis not very common out in the wild? Prior to this thread, I had never seen one.

    I also understand these are coming from people/groups that bought them to harvest the disks out of them. Which brings up another question about why they wouldn't just use those disks in this chassis rather than moving them to a different chassis.

    Just having a hard time wrapping my mind around why said groups wouldn't want these chassis. Although I don't have one in front of me, they look like tanks unless they are actually thin n flimsy?

    The chassis I believe is a new one from HGST, its heavy, and feels very solid just as it should be.

    Requiring QSFP connectors was annoying but not really a deal breaker. This jbod supports a single host connection, some others have multiple host connections.

    There are some environmental concerns with large JBOD chassis.

    First, many racks are not deep enough to hold them.

    Second is weight. There are posts out there that cannot support a full 40U of these boxes without having the posts bend. I have actually seen a few half filled (lower) racks for this reason. That situation depends on your rack and the chassis and is especially important on the larger 90 bay (or more) chassis.

    Remember, hard drives weigh around 1.5-2.25 lb each so these are not light.

    A third one is that the maintenance is a bit harder in that you do have to slide the chassis out of the rack to swap drives. That is what makes cable management arms important on these chassis and other top loading chassis like the HPE Moonshot.

    With all of that said, if they will fit, there is a good chance I will be grabbing one of these.
