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

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.

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

Has anyone got their 5 pack order in yet? or should i assume that pigLover got his in and the result was just one. (wishful thinking on my part :/ ) My order arrives next tuesday.. not looking good

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" )
