I did come across those but when costing out my build, but I was trying to
create a cheap stable enclosure setup so I could spend the majority of my $$
on the drives themselves.  I have really been happy with my setup.  The
system was up for over 130 Days until I upgraded to .21, and I even had a
drive fail that I was able to hot swap the replacement and rebuild the array
without any downtime!
