too bad they are SAS, I need SATA :(
If you can add an sas controller, it's an easy way to step up to these drives. Plus, sas controllers can handle both sata and sas so your existing drives would be usable too (but might not be in the same raid group/volume depending on the controller).

I took 'em ;). Perfect for my offsite backup server.
I didn't buy is because they didn't even have enough for one array for me. I didn't notice that when I first bookmarked, but when they came back with the offer, I was going to grab 8-12. Since they only had 5 available, I let people here know.

Had to message them after 3 offers since they weren't even countering. Didn't get a reply so I sent a 4th offer and about 16 hours after that one expired they sent a counter at 62.99. I probably ticked them off enough starting at $48 lol. $6/TB is what I usually pay on lesser capacity drives.

That's annoying, since my offer was higher than that. Sure, it's only $30 or so, but still....
