I’m currently pulling out one of my nicest Grandfathered 5000 (3U) units from my personal rack to make future room. This is a nice unit that anyone would be happy with...
The K-Server 5000 has: (8) 750GB Drives, (2) 1TB Drives, (1) 2TB Drive and (3) blanks.
The server works great with no issues. 100% operational. The unit is Grandfathered and can import DVDs., Blu Rays, etc.....with the Overall condition is great. It will be pulled from my own personal rack. Ive received and shipped these....plenty of times.....So no worries on secure packing. It will be packed correctly.

I’ve reduced the price on the server to sale quickly. I don’t think you’ll find a better deal anywhere.
Get it now for $1950 and I’ll ship it here in the Continental US for $100.
This is a great addition to an existing system....or a Cheap start to your own Kaleidescape System.

Thanks,
Cal

I currently have two separate units for sale.

1) First K-Server 5000 I have for sale has: (8) 750GB Drives, (2) 1TB Drives, (1) 2TB Drive and (3) blanks.
The server works great with no issues. I Replaced the PowerSupply this past year; so that should be good to go for awhile. The unit is Grandfathered and can import DVDs. Overall condition is great. It will be pulled from my own personal rack. I will ship in the correct 3U shipping container to insure secure packing.
I’ll take $2350 and shipping will be $100 within continental US.

2) Second K-Server 5000 I have for sale has: (11) 1TB Drives and (3) blanks. The server works great and has no operational issues. I have replaced the PowerSupply in this server as well this past year...I ran across a great deal and figured I could do a good dusting on both servers inside while I changed the supplies. The unit is Grandfathered and can import DVDs as well. Overall condition is good. It has the normal surface scratches from being removed and installed. The door hinges are broke. I actually was going to order the kit to fix it, but after the unit is racked and the door is placed on....You can’t really notice and it doesn’t effect operation at all. The unit will be pulled from my personal rack. I’ve discounted the unit for the hinges....
I’ll take $1700 and shipping will be $100 within continental US.

Thanks,
Cal
Hi

I have been using my Premiere 3U server for last 6-7 years and suddenly stopped working. I have all 14 drives full with my movies .Are these same 3U servers . All my drives are 4Tb or above so I don’t need drives . How old are these servers ? Can I use it under my account and just put my drives in and have my movies back ?

thanks

I'm surprised it's still for sale, it should have sold, I just sold one for $2800, empty, no warranty.

Jim,
You and me brother.....have no idea....I sold a cheaper one.....only thing wrong with it was those hinges...if you recall....I was on the fence of buying a set from you last year.....just didn’t seam that important once the unit was racked....you couldn’t tell...and you don’t really mess with it after it’s racked...

I discounted that one heavy just for hinges...what are those now? $300....and you have a perfectly good rack and drives for $1900.... Mike was so happy when he got it.....loves it.

Anyways, this ones in even better condition.....I left all the warning stickers....etc...on the unit...Looks, in very nice shape.....cleaned out....I put a new power supply in it.....(You never know when those things might quit on you)....I’ve got a mix of drives in it with open space..,,????? Honestly, don’t get it...I usually post here before going to eBay.....Just to help the K-Family out.....

Jim, think I’m giving it another day or two.....taking over to the Bay.....and hyping the price up on eBay like everyone else...,. Seems crazy, people rather pay the higher prices over there.... Have a few older pieces...I’ll probably list....

Anyways, when you first listed your three...,..Jim, I had mine ready to go and was really trying to practice patience and respect.....there was no way I was going to overrun the market place in servers....,so I waited till you unloaded at least two of them before I started posting....

Thanks for the concern..Jim..hopefully, I don’t have to pull everything and Move it over to the Flea Market....

Thanks,
Calvin

Good luck with that!

Yes, that hinge set is $325 retail from K, but it is available.

Thanks Jim,

I’ll relay that onto the buyer of that first server that had the hinged issue...Don’t know if he’s thinking like me and not worried about it like me...but I really did discount it a whole lot more than the the cost of the kit....just to make a quick sale....
I’ll recommend him to you; if he’s interested in the purchase of the kit....
Thanks for the info....

Calvin

Hello—just attempted to send you a pm but couldn’t find anything by that name under the new forum software, so I ‘started a conversation’-hope that works.
