I might still have a 1GB ESDI drive somewhere in my junk closet. The
thing weighs about 10 lbs.

I have a Seagate ST-125 which is a 21MB drive. 😮

I tend to agree, however, I've been let down by RAID 5 on numerous
occasions. Oh well, that's what Seagate Recovery Services are for I guess,
although I have a problem with a drive manufacturer also owning a data
recovery service...if you know what I mean. They do, however, do good work.

I rememger them -- the 'half height' version of the venerable ST-225 (a
good vintage, that).

Over the years I've shifted from one to the other -- though for SCSI
drives I tended to stay happy with Seagates. For now, I think both WD
and Seagate are something of a mixed bag. For that matter, Samsung and
Hitachi drives are in that 'ok' but mixed grouping as well.

acquisition.

What about Kalok? Priam? Rodime? Imprimus?

There's a site you can actually still buy that stuff.

Indeed -- Seagate was (at least for a while) the CA of its day.
