HDDs for a test Smart-1 3050

I think I scored on ebay.  I have a 3050 on its way to my house for my personal lab.  But, no HDDs.  I know why they did that whomever surplused it.  But kind of need them.

The part is Check Point CPAC-HDD-2TB-SM225/3050/3150 2TB.  I have not had one in my hands in 5 years, so I don't remember if they had a daughter card.  I think I can use a generic Dell SAS SATA hot swappable tray/caddy.   Then populate 2 slots with WD Enterprise drives (WD Gold 1TB Enterprise Class Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM Class SATA 6Gb/s 128MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD1005FBYZ).

Does anyone have a caddy and drive sitting around to take a picture of or tried this?

Oh, shipping was ridiculous at $130, but with tax, it was still under $500.  🙂

The 3050 was a Lanner box, not a Dell box. Dell drive rails might fit, but might not.

I would probably just insert an SSD or two and tape them down. 1 TB SSDs are like $80, so I don't see a good reason to ever use spinning drives in a personal lab box.
