I have a 1 GB SMD 5 1/4" drive from Seagate. I should get it hooked up
to my PDP-11/73. But, on the other side, the 9" NEC SMD disk is so much
nicer. Especially the sound. When the heads move it sounds like someone
is hiting the platers with a hamer. The backstroke from the moving head
assembly is stong enough to get a DEC BA123 moving.
(Disk + BA123 = 100 kg) :-)
