Thanks, they are cheaper than a lot.  Have to investigate.


4-way case is $114.  I still think that's expensive for what is
(probably) a stripped down vanilla PC case with a generic $10 power

They are also fairly large and have the standard PC tower cooling

Also notable is they don't sell mobile racks for SCSI.  I suppose that's
what SCA is for, but SCA backplanes/cases are expensive.

Now the 8-bay for $128 is unusual.  Most of the time going to the big
ones puts you well north of $200.  Another 8-bay enclosure is
cheaper, but it isn't clear what it is.

None of the cases have good views so you can see them inside and on the

Their website would be more useful if they had more details, like:

* type of power supply, and brand
* view of inside
* view of rear
* type of cabling (I assume it is full of PVC cables)
