I've had mixed luck with the XP32150's... I think the 32550N's would
last longer.

I've got a bad 32150 (wide SCSI differential version) downstairs...

I've also got a bunch of Quantum Fireball drives that you can't kill.

The problem seems to be based on which model Quantum -- some are good
some are dogs.

I thought all the IBM's were great until I heard about the problems with
their 60gb and up stuff...


  d|i|g|i|t|a|l had it THEN.  Don't you wish you could still buy it now!|
