WOOT - :( SO SAD! - so glad - so remorseful

"Your account has already purchased this sale."

UPDATE1Sometimes it's good to have 2 names, 2 credit card numbers, and 2 postal cities.

UPDATE2NewEgg has a 5-bay SATA enclosure (open box) with port multiplier and SATA II card for $103 plus $16 s/h

UPDATE3I have been holding off on buying more storage space for the file server for a while now. This upgrade puts me a 3.9TB and $408 out of pocket.

Except, I was so excited, I didn't pre-check the rest of my options, and cancelling from WOOT duet o buyer's remorse isn't really feasible.

If I'd bought 4x 1TB drives, it would have been $312 and gotten me about 2.9TB vs 1.5TB now.

I'll justify the purchase because it saves me the hassle (and risk) of having to move the data onto the new disks (I'll just add the new disks and convert to raid6 with a cold spare). Also, I'll have more than twice the number of spindles, so performance will be better.
