fireforsin Posted February 10, 2008 Posted February 10, 2008 Hello all. I have a somewhat confusing question that I believe you guys can answer. Here it goes. I have a 19" EIA Rack setup alongside my computer. This is what I want to do. I want to get one of these: RACKMOUNT SATA HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE The problem with that is I do not want to spend 500-1000 dollars for just a hard drive enclosure. I want to set up about 5 eSATA drives for use in my video editing setup. I would love to have a nice rack system like the one above that could hold all the drives. So begins my idea and question. I was thinking about buying one of these: RACK MOUNT SERVER CASE Since that is much cheaper I could just buy these HARD DRIVE ENCLOSURE and put hard drives in them. So I think I would still be under roughly $500 with the case and hard drives. Now if I just throw some cheap 250W power supply in the case and hook everything up I was hoping it would work. Last but not least I get this: SATA to eSATA What do you think of all this. Would this work? I would greatly appreciate the help. Thanks, Mike Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
