TK50 is the only one that hasn't messed me up. Then again most of the
TK50s found are dead or nearly so.

HPT20 travan-5, burnt me so bad... Seems the _tape_ moves so
fast it heats up... alot... then be come useless due to heat.

D540, best drive ever.

ST225 is a good one, the 251 and 4096 were junk. The ST251
was far to hot running to survive unless cooled with great effort.
