29612Re: RL01 drives, worthwhile?
- Mar 12, 2013Hi Jonathan,
I have an RL01K-DC Data Cartridge that I'd be willing to part with. No idea if it works. I got it years ago when I used a pair of RL01 drives for my night table.
Perhaps I sell it on ebay? I have no idea what they sell for.

I can get them, but it looks like they're going to be over $100 a pack (they do come with a guarantee). I'd like everyone's opinions on whether it's a worthwhile endeavor or not, or if I'd be better off going with another solution (RL02, RK05, et c.).
