Thank you for the tip and link!If you only need 12-16 disks, the IBM ServeRAID 46M0997 is a better and cheaper option.
I'm in the same boat. I recall them going for $50-$100 before prices shot up to the $250+ area a year (or so) ago.Seems like others got you covered.
I am curious about what would be a good fair price for it? I have got one in a system I will be upgrading to SAS3 in a couple of weeks.
Bought this one and the IBM one. Hopefully one will work for my project.
