My view on this is to run RL02's and/or SCSI. I've got both on my /44, and
I seriously expect the RL02's to be running *long* after the two RZ55's and
thier replacements have died. The *only* downside I see to RL01's and
RL02's is the physical size and capacity of the drives.

The fact that my drives even work is a major testimony to thier reliability!
As they weren't treated the best before I got them.
