Other sites have said the same.  I bought an Areca 1130ML from PC
Pitstop.  The SATA cabling systems are quite complicated so I called.
The guy was quite knowledgeable, btw.

I also took apart the Promise box in the hopes that it could be used
as an enclosure.  It's quite well engineered (no internal cables) so I
figured it was cheaper to buy a 12-bay enclosure.

Thanks for the help.  I'll report back with results in a couple of weeks.
