First off, thanks for looking
I recently parted out my homeoffice RAID5 array and would like to trade the components.
I have four CRU DataPort VIII 68pin SCSI enclosures that I'd like to trade for AR/gun parts, gear etc. The sliding drive trays are also included. I paid $125 each for them less than a year ago. From the manufacturer:
"DataPort VIII is the ultimate system when continuous visual monitoring of a hard disk drive is required. It features an advanced design and criterion for high capacity disk drives operating at 7200rpm and above. The DataPort VIII has a cast alloy metal frame and cartridge, SCSI ID selector switch with LED display, and gold-plated connectors. The DataPort VIII comes with dual ball bearing fans; one fan in front draws outside air in while a fan in back pushes heat out and away from the unit. CRU's patented Temperature Controlled Cooling System (TCCS) is a standard feature of the DataPort VIII and is coupled with an audible fan failure alarm. Complete Assembly configuration includes SCSI Ultra Wide/LVD, cast aluminum cartridge, cast aluminum frame, LCD display, dual fans, fan failure alarm, key."
Here is a pic of one of them currently deployed in my video editing rig:
Here are the four for trade-before they were removed from the enclosure:
Also up for trade is the CRU enclosure pictured above. I will include the backplane and cabling necessary to make it compatible with the CRU DataPort V. Also included will be a single DataPort V (SCSI). I paid over $200 less than a year ago for this enclosure. It is in good working order, but the front bezel trim ring is cracked. I will gladly send pics to interested parties.
Last item up for trade is an LSI MegaRAID Express 500 U160 RAID controller. It has been upgraded with onboard NIMH battery backup, as well as a 128MB onboard cache. I can include the ($75) external VHDCI cable or internal cables if needed. I have just over $400 invested in this card between the cables, cache, and battery backup. It has in Intel i960 RM 100Mhz processor and can handle up to 40 logical drives. Arrays can be built in 0, 1, 3, 5, 10, 30, and 50. The manufacturers feature link is HERE
I would love to trade for anything AR related, but other gun parts, gear, ammo carriers etc are welcome. Please e-mail at CJan99999@comcast.net
or IM if interested. Thanks!!
