    Well, long story (very) short, an old system of mine and had all the storage HDDs mounted in these. The system is no longer in use, and actually has been cannibalized almost in entirety by now, but the case and drive bays are just sitting around gathering dust. I had been planning on rebuilding it with better components, but ever since I discovered multi-drive bays (ie, 5-in-3's, 4-in-3's, 3-in-2's, etc) I doubt I'll ever use 1-in-1's ever again, for that purpose (the system was a fileserver, incase you couldn't guess ).
    pic of case with populated front (yeah, I know the top bay is off a bit; this was after its effective lifetime):


    re: DonT-FeaR, I might could be persuaded if you've got an interesting idea but I feel like the cost of shipping would probably be more than the cost (at least in the US) of buying a new one. (I think they cost me ~$20-25 each, originally)

    Could you weigh it? I have a UPS account, so I get a little discount through them if they're cheaper.

    I would guess around 8 oz, but the cheapest shipping according to UPS and FedEx's online calculators for that would be ~$70US

    Where are you? And $70 for 8 oz can't be right, unless you're having them pick it up.

    If you say that you will schedule a pickup (for UPS, at least), they only give you the outrageous quotes, not the normal ones.

    I tried for drop-off and pick-up, which were actually about the same. The problem, I would think, is that it's shipping from Maryland, USA to Gawler, Australia. There seems to be a minimum cost of ~$75 for UPS, and ~$70 for FedEx (1 pound was the same for both).

    Try this, too http://postcalc.usps.gov They can pickup the packages for free, too. And could you give me a shipping quote to 48167?
