Shiny whirry things

I’m attracted to shiny whirry things, especially when they have blinkenlights too. So I’m really tryingn to figure out if I have any use for really cheap scsi drives. 18 gig, 10k rpm, $15. Cheap enough to go for a 10 pack. The rub is that they are SCA connectors (read enterprise class), so finding a chassis to put them in is probably significantly more expensive than the drives themselves.

And that 10k rpm scsi drives are not known to be quiet, power efficient, cool or otherwise compatible with home datacenter use, especially when one is threatening to use 10 of them. But it would be really cool to have a big honkin drive array to play^H^H^H^H experiment with.
