They were selling for a little over 300 a few months back. I bought one but it's still in box looking for a purpose.

This is the D4U and not the D4U2-2T right?

Because the latter one has 10Gb on board etc.
Yes, NewEgg has the sale on the dual 1Gb board [not the dual 10 Gb board].

TigerDirect jas the 2T in stock for $381.99 USD:

[and the standard board for $258.99, but "temporarily out of stock"]

I was debating buying the 1Gb board from Tigerdirect earlier in the week [when they still had stock], and then saw the NewEgg price last night...

Newegg has both but only the non-10Gb version is on sale.
But you have the 10Gb version?
Little bit confused here...

In EU the D4U(2x1Gb) costs around €260 normally and has been on sale for ~€200 a couple of times.

The D4U2-2T(10Gb) costs around €340 and has been on sale for ~€300 a few times..

Not sure on US prices but they're usually a bit lower than ours. So it's not a pretty good deal I think.

Maybe you were mistaken with the D4U2-2T being over $300?

Yeah, prices and availability have been all over the place recently.

I plan on using mine for a [dedicated] NAS to replace my Drobo 5C: I have a newly purchased Antec P101 case ready, and an LSI HBA on it's way, and six 8 TB WD REDs ready....

Now it's the hard part; choosing between Unraid, FreeNAS or Proxmox...*
* lots of reading and playing with test setups, but still not decided yet; I have a min-ITX, four 4 drive FreeNAS setup I've been testing for past few weeks [with some old spare drives], and I've been using my old Ryzen workstation/gaming box to test out Unraid and Proxmox this few days...

No mistakes... ;-) [There are other threads in this forum about pricing / availability issues with this board].

I think the MSRP for the X470 is ~$259 USD, but it's been selling for >$300 USD for past few months in the USA... and the 2T [ dual 10 Gb] for well over $400 USD*...
*e.g. cheapest price via NewEgg.com today is $499 USD for the 2T...

One of the few times something is actually cheaper in Europe versus US... likely just not enough of them being distributed in the USA...
