FS: Dual Bay hot-swap Serial ATA screamer!
For those of you looking for really fast storage, especially good for screaming fast scratch disks for Photoshop, here's a FirmTek 2EN2 drive in excellent condition together with six drive sleds, two WD Raptor 150GB drives and two serial ATA cables. Sells new for $450, offered here for $275 shipped in CONUS.
I will even throw in a Cardbus32 dual serial ATA adapter for free (SeriTek 2SM2-E)
Dual-Bay Hot-Swap External Serial ATA Enclosure
The SeriTek/2EN2 is a cutting-edge two-bay Serial ATA (SATA) external hard drive enclosure. It provides versatile hot-swap capabilities with virtually unlimited storage possibilities in a small form-factor package that sits neatly beside your notebook or desktop computer. SeriTek/2EN2 offers the latest eSATA shielded connectors and a whisper-quiet fan with three user-selectable speed settings.
SeriTek/2EN2 extends Serial ATAís storage capabilities outside of the computer chassis with flexibility on par with USB or FireWire but with much higher 3.0Gbps transfer rates. Serial ATA Hard drives can easily be swapped in and out of the SeriTek/2EN2 enclosure within seconds. The two included drive trays are compatible with FirmTek's other SeriTek external enclosures.
Allowing for true end-to-end Serial ATA capabilities, SeriTek/2EN2 is compatible with virtually all Serial ATA host adapters such as the SeriTek/1eVE4 and SeriTek/1SM2. SeriTek external host adapters, like the SeriTek/2EN2 enclosure, are designed with shielded Serial ATA ports which meet regulatory requirements for electrostatic discharge (ESD), electromagnetic interference (EMI) emissions, and susceptibility. This ensures that a good ground path between the cables and the connectors exists to prevent any ESD discharge during cable insertion or removal.

Re: FS: Dual Bay hot-swap Serial ATA screamer!
I will now also include a SeriTek 2 port eSATA host adapter for the Mac Pro.
That's the 2 bay drive, 6 sleds, 2 Raptor drives, host adapter, cardbus adapter and two eSATA cables for $275 shipped in CONUS. How can you beat that???
