    16 bay 2.5" SAS / SATA External Enclosure - J1606S

    Anyone bought this? Cant find any review or any comments about this..
    I'm interested cause i'm looking for all ssd rack.. and it seems like theres very little affordable options..
    The size is also ideal, not much bigger than regular pc casing..

    I think you could roll your own JBOD box similar for about half that price.
    SilverStone KL06B-W Black Computer Case - Newegg.com
    has 8x internal 2.5" bays, plus 2 5.25" external bays, would give upto 24x 2.5" bays using
    Athena Power BP-15827SAC an 1 x 5.25" External Drive Bay to 8 x 2.5" SSD / HDD Hot-Swap SAS / SATA Backplane Module - Transfer Rate Up to 6 Gbps SAS (I, II) / SATA (I, II, III) - Drive Thickness Up to - OEM - Newegg.com
    add a power supply and a few other bits for around $300.
    Or, if you don't really need the full theoretical performance of 16x ssd, and are looking to rack mount anyway, look at a netapp ds2246, which used to be available ready to roll for <$100 on ebay. now look like about $120 shipped complete except for drives. The qsfp->SFF-8088 cable will run you about $40 on ebay, depending on length.
    There are other versions of the netapp(xyratex) box, such as the compellent sc220, that are more expensive...

    I'd think so. Note that the 8x2.5" will only work with 7mm ssds, not the 15mm units that are out there.
