    After looking at that, and then seeing individual examples of that board selling for $350 a pop, I'm wondering if something's a bit.... odd

    I agree, but I'm seeing it from multiple vendors... even Provantage (first link) has 14 kits in stock. Really odd.

    Ok, well I put an order in for one (5-pack), I'll tell you what I find inside. I can always return it if it's not a 5-pack.

    If it IS a 5 pack, I'll buy a pair off you for 75 a pop plus shipping

    I'd be in for one if a group buy of some sort were arranged. At a similar price to the 24-port SAS2 version, would be pretty hard to pass up

    good find, but i did the same google shopping search you prob. did as well (when you said multi vendors selling it) and many of the listed vendors have the 5 pack listed as sold out and a few have messages like this:

    Our system encounters some problem:

    The page you are just searching for or linked to from other pages is either no longer in our system or some required information is missing



    I just did a order too! so if it comes in a single its going back unopened ( i already have the sas2 24 port version of this).

    They are a single expander, individually boxed, that was pulled from a 5-pack. Sorry for bad news and too bad the web sellers are using dodgy product descriptions.

    Mh. I placed my order at eBay with buyer guarantee. I am not from the US, but under German law the seller would be obliged to fulfill the contract [​IMG]

    Thanks for the clarification. I figured that it was way too odd.

    I emailed a local supplier and was quite upfront that I assumed it was a mistake and should be for one not five. They replied that it is indeed a 5-pack. That being said I'm still expecting this to be for 1 but at least I can get my money back easily.

    I can tell you that my fedex tracking number shows the weight as 2lb (.91kgs) so i would expect the weight to be more if this was a real 5 pack..

    we shall see :( man would i love to pair one of my 5 expanders with a adaptec 8405!!!

    edit; maybe intel is to blame for this fiasco.. check out this intel page: (shows "ordering code" for the 5 pack is "RES3TV360" )

    OK in for one of those. @Chuckleb if 5 show up your thread is going to the main site as the hottest deal around.

    I think I see a 4 pin molex connector. If that can be used to power the expander then there is a good chance it would be easy to integrate in non-Intel chassis.
