Hi Dan
 I had no intentions of destroying anything. I even have hopes
of getting a H-11 one of these days. I was just going to run
a cable from my MDS-800 ( that only uses external drives )
because I need drives that will do double density. The H-27
has what I need, a box, a power supply and drives. It would
stay a H-27.
 What kind of animal do you think I am?
