That is an excellent point - there is no fan in the Mirage (or the
rather newer EPS, or the Emax II, or the ESI-4000 either although the
latter uses HD disks).
Funny thing is that the otherwise-identical SQ80 disk drives apparently
failed a lot more than the ones in Mirages. Well, they're double-sided
but in practice all this means is that it uses the head select line.
