Picture to follow, I gave away a stack of Ultra 2s, kept a stack of Ultra 2s, and found a handfull more in the basement (with my box full of Creators (vertical and horizontal) and hard drives - I "lost" them 2 1/2 years ago in a move...

I think my photo shows atleast 20 Ultra 2 chassis (I'd make it available, but the computer I'm on can't download from my memory card from my phone)...
