I would assume he has tried looked there already. He is appealing for private sales and not really posting a "where can I buy".
Or at least thats what the point of these forums are.

Ah but one never assumes and for something like this, why bother with a private sale. :/
I'm guessing "Cage" didn't yield as much in a search as caddy or drawer.

I will have a think about the prefixes and may add a

as a possible.

I have a spare single-drive removable IDE caddy I bought in error off eBay (was looking for a SATA one). It's still in its shrink-wrapped box, you're welcome to it. PM me your address and I'll post it out to you.

The RAID device they sold me works a treat (I can swap and auto-rebuild harddrives whilst viewing video), although the fan is really quite noisy, not recommended for desktops, just for servers.

Thanks all but yes, I do of course know of all the usual sources and was hoping I could get one cheaper here that someone no longer needed.
dhicks, looking for a multi-bay one but thanks for the offer, will check those links too.

Tell us what you buy and if it works okay - I've got to try and convince the Bursar that we need some better storage facilities, so I was thinking of buying a couple of those multi-bay caddies and making a couple of file servers. At £50-odd or whatever they are I figure I can't go too far wrong, but I'd like to know how you get on if you buy one first!

I've installed three different IcyBox multi-SATA drive hot swap doohickies ranging from 4 drives to a 5 drive which I got for my own server.
