        Well, lesseee.... Those were also made by Fujitsu, Control Data, and (I recall) Shugart and Century Data. Of those, Fujitsu is the most common in the surplus arena.

        They were often used in high-end engineering workstations, such as those done by Tektronix, HP, and others. Come to think of it, a buddy of mine has a bunch of SMD drives in just that form factor, and I think he's looking to get rid of stuff. E-mail me a private note with details of what you're looking for in terms of capacity, and I will forward it to him.

        Keep the peace(es).
