        While I tend to use IBM drives when I have the choice, I've
always had good luck with Quantum drives. They seemed to work even
in systems that were a bit picky about the drive used. I still have
a number of Seagate drives in use here, but have had more of them
fail than other types of SCSI drives made in the last 10 or so years.
