Hi,

I'm a bit stuck at the moment, I used to work for a company called New Media AV in the UK. They were the distributor for SNS in the UK but NMAV went bust in May of this year.

Through a couple of random events (not getting paid and offered old stock in return) I've ended up with 3 SNS X-4's. They work fine and are new and not been used before I think they're setup as RAID 10 down to 2TB.

My question is how the hell do I sell them? The RRP was something like $5,000 but I don't want anything like that just enough to cover a mortgage payment would be good!

Any ideas?

Adam

Hi,

I've listed them on eBay quite a few times going down to £200 maybe there is just noone out there who needs a rackmount X-4.

Any takers, I'd be willing to go down to maybe £100/$150?

Hi Nate,

Thanks for the info! I actually have two X-4's with 4 SanMP software and two Ellipse Enterprise cards.

I've checked them out with Mark Sekula who's a big SNS nut and he's said everything is working fine with them.

Appreciate the help!
