Free up a spare drive sled in the Mac Pro
Authored by: tempel on May 20, '08 10:45:19AM

I had just been in a regular PC shop in Munich (Germany) where they sell such adapters with a single eSATA connector for 5 Euro, which is about 7-8 US$.

Nevertech is asking a lot of money.

Free up a spare drive sled in the Mac Pro

If a $29 drive sled is a lot of money, you bought the wrong computer. That's like 1% of the purchase price of the computer. I'm not going to jury-rig a physically unattached hard drive laying on felt into a $3K computer. How clever will you feel if/when the SATA connector on the backplane breaks or the drive overhead from sitting on felt and having no airflow?
