Sonnet DX800 8 drive RAID (w/ port expander) and Atto R380 card

An 8TB system goes for $3000 new without a RAID card, I'm asking $1400 for everything including RAID card.

This is a fantastic RAID for systems with PCIe cards, or you can use the chassis itself with Thunderbolt connectors like the Atto Thunderstream.

Anyway, you get the Sonnet DX800 with either 1.5TB enterprise drives, two 6 foot SAS cables and the industrial-strength Atto R380 RAID card.

I've never had a single problem with the RAID itself, the drives, or the card. You get transfer speeds close to 800 MB/s. ALSO, this RAID chassis can actually run off just one SAS cable, which lets you attach another SAS device like an LTO drive to the other SAS port on the Atto card. You lose a little speed on the RAID, but gain the ability to connect a RAID and LTO using just one little PCIe card.

NOTE: If you want the enclosure alone, I might be willing to sell without the Atto card.

Local pickup in Los Angeles preferred, in the Hollywood area. Email helmutk at for pics, etc.
