Random SATA craps

I am omnipresent
I have a few things I'm not really using. Maybe someone will be interested, maybe not. I'll probably Craigslist this stuff next week if there aren't any takers.

* SuperMicro 5 3.5" to 3 5.25" hotswap SATA 1.5Gbps bay enclosure. Beige. Loud as hell with stock fan.

* Off-brand (Vantec or Norco, maybe?) 5 3.5" to 3 5.25" hotswap SATA 3.0Gbps bay enclosure. Black. Not quite as loud.

I figure those are worth $60 apiece. They're both lightly used.

* Rosewill RSV-S8. 8 bay eSATA enclosure with crappy SiL PCIe 1x controller and 2 sets of eSATA cables (1m and .5m).

I'd like to get $150 for it. They're $250 new but Newegg drops them to $200 fairly regularly. They technically support 8 drives, but the controller is retarded and can only address 5 storage volumes at a time. The thing works and I barely used it, what with it being retarded and all. I guess that's awesome if you want to create four RAID1s or something, though.

* 4 2.5" to 5.25" hotswap bay enclosure.

Again, lightly used. Really handy if you're trying to build a small NAS or need to image a bunch of notebook drives. $20.

Shipping will by by UPS unless otherwise specified.
