As for the ST225, don't forget that they *love* to cook their logic
boards... there's one spot that gets hot and then the logic board rolls over
and dies...

Some of my favorite drives:
Anything made by Vertex
CDC Sabre (I had a rack fall over with a pair of these in it and they're
still 100% AOK, despite having been mounted like 3 feet up in the rack)
DEC RA90 (of course, I personally know one of the designers of this drive,
so if it fails, I *will* bitch at him!)
IBM 8102... Nothing says hard disk like 62MB in 600lbs!
