Hello 4723-ga,

I'm sorry you're having trouble getting your questions answered. In
fact, I was hesitant to answer this because it feels more like an
opinion then an answer. However, noticing your frustration that must
have prompted this question, I figured it was better to step in and
help you. What I'm going to offer are my ideas and opinions based on
being here as a researcher at GA since the beginning years ago.

I went and did a search for your user name and pulled up 12 questions
with your name on them.
This is a new question you posted today.
It's a high $$$ question so you can be assured it will get noticed.
However, it's not very clear. You state "I do need NAS  but I need
SAN.". I assume you mean "I do not need NAS, but I need SAN." Making
sure you give us a clear picture of what you need and as MANY
details/parameters as possible helps us to even know where to start.

Next, let's talk about pricing. A researcher gets 75% of the listed
price of a question. So, for a 15.00 question, we make 11.25

In this question you essentialy ask 3 different questions for the
15.00 price. It would take me an hour at least to find this
information and give you a good answer. Not to mention there's not a
lot of details. In financial matters every detail counts. Not many
researchers will take on a task that may take ours of work with not
many details for 11.25. You're always more than welcome to price how
you feel is appropiate, but this question might have better broken up
into 3 seperate questions for 15.00 apiece.

Same for all of these. More details are the key to a lot of them and
also pricing. Some of those questions, companies pay 1000's of $$$ to
have them answered by consultants. Always remember, that the person
who thinks about answering your question needs to weigh the money made
vs. time and effort spent. We have to make sure it's financially worth
the time and effort. You wouldn't spend 6 hours working your job for
20.00, and neither will we.
This question asks for all. That could be over 1000's of places for
7.50. Let alone we researchers shy away from answering questions that
ask for "all" because we can never be sure we can find all. We don't
want to incompletely ask a question, so it dosen't get answered. For
that question I would have maybe asked for 2 or 3 manufacturers for
the price.

I hope this helps to understand why questions may go unanswered here on GA.

Those links may also help.

If this answer requires further explanation, please request
clarification before rating it, and I'll be happy to look into this

You also have to bear in mind that you might ask a question that the
gars simply do not know.
