I think you mentioned you had ~150GB drives, but I was wondering if you had
some in larger size? I'd take a couple 300GB if the price was right. I
bought an LTO-3 drive, but if I want to do any CPU based compression, I'm
going to need at least a (400GB) tape's worth of 'tape spooling' buffer
space. 3 ~150GB drives would work, but I'd like to cut down on power and
noise, and go with a couple 300GB drives if you have them, and the price is
right. I'd be willing to do about $40 for the two or three drives, if
that's not worth your time, then just let me know and I'll start looking
for some drives elsewhere.
