Any word on price/availability? The fan off/on switch on the front IMO would have been nice. Guess they felt people wouldn't have the need/desire to turn the fans on/off constantly.

That'd be perfect for my SSD's / 2.5 Momentus XT's raid... I'm currently using two dual bay backplanes, this would save me some room!
