Cheap but these are no longer considered high density storage solutions.

These were Super interesting until the major vendors started to come out with much better prices solutions not too different to this in terms of density. As everybody knows now it's all about the software that holds it all together :)

Exactly. And for $12,849 it is not exactly cheap.

I'd be happy with one that holds 35-40 drives. What other vendors do you guys suggest?

I think I have 3 of these now? Work well. If you do buy one and want to re-cable it for different connectors, (SFF-8087 to SFF-8643 for example) it is a bit of a pain. Not terrible but you will only want to do the exercise once.
