Just curious, are reps and equipment based/shipped from Singapore for you guys as well?

Maybe because I'm in Oz things are harder to get than higher volume countries like the US.

We have used www.servercaddies.co.uk in the past, they get the parts out very quickly which is a bonus.

They're not too bad to deal with half the time, or too expensive, so if you get desperate you can give going direct ago. You have probably dealt with some bad reps, managers or entire teams before so I can see why you want to avoid this.
We have never ever faced a issue when buying caddies on their own directly from our account manager. Im sure it just comes down to how your account manager is doing for the quarter.

I originally posted the link but haven't bought any from Amazon.

Does the R610 fit 3.5" caddies as well?
I find multiple sellers that sell 3.5 that supposedly fit the R610 but on Dell's spec sheet it says that the R610 only fits 2.5?

What are they usually? I can't be bothered to go googling

super micro's are about half that, so it sounds reasonable

That seems a bit excessive then.

A quick amazon search on G176J yielded:

http://www.amazon.com/2-5G176J-Drive...9150078&sr=1-3

That looks pretty good at $13.99


I see Stallard a lot on ebay. But having checked their prices on things over the years they never seemed to be really competitive. Although in a pinch they probably have what you need and can next day air it at a reasonable cost. I would bet their caddy prices are the same xbyte.
