I gave all of my SA3x0 drives to Roger, along with the Gavilans. 'course
they do tend to trickle out of the woodwork, anyway.

I sold some early Sony drives at a VCF years ago, and I have no idea where
the rest of them are.

The Shugart ones were not significantly different from any other 3.5"
drives from the days when they were the height of a "half height" 5.25"

The Sony drives were much more interesting. "2/3 height", 600 RPM at 500K
data transfer rate, etc.
