Yeah, mine was built when 250G drives were about $250 each, and the case
cost me nearly $500, and the 3-Ware card was over $200. Still, I've
gotten my money's worth out of it.
I'll probably move this setup into one of those 20 bay cases, and build
a second software array on new drives, migrate the data and move the
mount points around, then decommission the old drives into a few older
machines I can donate to local schools or churches that could use them.
Might even get a tax write-off out of some of it.
I haven't smoked for 2 years, 10 months and 2 days, saving $4,669.26 and
not smoking 31,128.43 cigarettes.
