Does the case of Dell T20 fit 4 HDDs? Do I need to buy some special cables and/or brackets to mount them (the 1TB+3 x 3TB HDDs)?

Regarding the sharing of a DVD drive in Freenas with other PC's in the network, I have found several people in the forums requesting that feature however not many answers on how to do it. With all the android sticks and other media devices without a DVD, I find it kind of strange not being able to share a DVD drive from Freenas to other devices.

Anyone think the E3-1245v3, +4GB of RAM (total of 16GB), the 6 SATA ports and the DVD are worth the price difference of 186 EUR?

Many thanks for all your input :)

The T20 comes with 4 HDD bays, all trays, data and power cables included. No expansion room beyond that with massive fiddling however.
