> This is a bit modern for the list, but I'm hoping someone here has some experience. I've just been given a pair of BA356 enclosures, and the one has 6 empty DS-RZ1CB-VW SSB's. The shelf itself is a BA356-KD with BA35X-MD 2X fans, and a BA35X-MH 16-bit I/O Personality Module.
> My question is, while the DS-RZ1CB-VW SSB's are intended for 4.3GB 7200RPM *SCA* drives, can they handle 9 or 18GB 10,000RPM SCA drives?

I've put some 9GB and 36GB 10K SCA drives in mine without having problems. The 36GB drives
were 1.6", so I removed the piece of foam, but that's all. I think if I had some of the
earlier, hotter-running 9GB drives I'd be a little concerned.
