With a couple of friends, we have 9370/10, 9370/30, and 9370/60's which work.

Had several opportunities to get 922x's but not as interesting, since the
93xx's run
"free" software and the 922x's don't unless in 370 mode.

and hercules pretty much made any pc equivalent to all of the above, at least
