With all the high-end non-PC systems up until the early 2000s using such
drives, I'm hoarding them at this point.<snip>
I tend to agree...I've been trying to get my hands on as many 9 and 18gb fast/narrow disks as I can. These are extremely useful, and have less years on them than most narrow disks. I have 4-5 in my disk storage box, so far. I use them in my 68k Macs, my early SPARCstations, my Amigas, and others.
