I have a T1K.

The original ones that shipped (like mine) had a single SATA disk in a
single bracket, a 3.5" disk:


A little while after the run started, they started offereing them with two
2.5" SAS disks, which fit into the space taken up by the single 3.5" disk
(different disk bracket).

There's two control "ports" on the motherboard; I'm guessing that they're
actaully SAS (which can also control SATA, but not the other way around).
If you could get 2.5" SATA drives I think you could fit two of them into
the T1K without problem with the right bracket.
