    Multi-Drive ATA Enclosure?

    What I am looking for is a multi-drive ATA/IDE enclosure that could be hooked up via USB 2.0 or perhaps RJ45. Is there such a thing on the market? I have five identical 250g ATA/IDE drives laying around that I would like to put to use but do not have the need to put them in a system with an OS on it. I would like to just put then in an enclosure and do some DAS or NAS. I have seen them at Newegg but it only takes up to 2 drives........I would like to be able to use 3 or more in one enclosure.

    Is there such a thing?

    as above, no idea of quality, etc
    There's no place like 127.0.0.1

    Although it appears Addonics makes a fine product, I am beginning to think it is a bad investment ($$$$) for old technology (ATA HDs)
