Server Case Deal

I honestly don't know if this is appropriate for this forum but since this is the only forum I really participate in anymore, and it might help some users (specifically for those of us with, or who want to build, a server) here, I wanted to get the word out...

Rosewill RSV-R4000 server case is currently available through Sears direct from Rosewill themselves (as a marketplace seller) for $69.99 with free shipping (and as a market place seller, no sales tax charged at checkout). It is currently on special at several outlets, but this price is lower by at least $10 anywhere else I found. I ordered this on Wednesday, case came today and I'm quite impressed for $70 and you certainly cannot complain about the shipping. Looks very well built and good fit/finish for about the same cost as a run of the mill tower case. No indication of how long this price will last.

As shipped it has space for 8 3.5" drives (no hot swap or backplane though) and 3 empty 5.25" drive bays. Accommodates up to ATX boards and uses regular ATX power supplies. Add any 5 in 3 cage to get 13 drives total, or just replace all bays with the hotswap cages of your choice for up to 15 drives.

OR, add 1x of the Rosewill RSV-Cage (14.99 seems to be the going price everywhere) and you'll have a case similar to the RSV-L4500 (but with 12 drives) for quite a bit less.

OR, add 3x of the Rosewill RSV-SATA-Cage-34 (currently on sale at Amazon for $49.99) and you'll still come out slightly ahead relative to buying the RSV-L4412 which comes this way, and ebay the cheap included cages.
Server: Asrock C236WSI, Xeon E3-1225, 32GB RAM, NAS4Free (FreeBSD) 11.1 w/Ubuntu VM for SageTV
Tuners: HD Homerun Quatro (OTA), Hauppauge Colossus HDMI capture (CATV)
Clients: SageTV client on Windows 7 HTPC, NVidia Sheild
