2.5" to 3.5" adapters have been around for quite a while. What I want is a cage that fits 4 2.5" drives in a 5 1/4" bay. :D

Capacity at the moment is a matter of cost, not the physical constraint of a 2.5" form factor.

Athena, Supermicro and other make them.





Though what I really like is this 2.5" x 8 in 5.25" x 2 carrier:



80mm fan instead of 40mm and... it holds more SSD :)

Those SSD's don't hardly weigh anything. Just stick em all over your case!

Agree .. 2.5" adapters have been around FOREVER!! This is hardly news.

AgreeX2 lets stop Farting around with nonsense 2.5" SSD's for crazy prices and just make 3.5 / or DVD/CD style big-ass ones with Big cheap memory so we can all have fun.

And for Agree X3 I've purchased 2.5" / 3.5" for number of uses over the years and never paid more than ~$3 for them...
