Acutally, I've had the opposite experience... I've had a lot of
trouble with Fujitsu SCSI drives and no problems at all with the
Quantums (and DEC-repackaged ones Dell used to put in their
machines). Seagate's have been fairly good, although I've had
friends who complained esp. about the Sun-repackages ones (the
drives ran really hot and sun put them in air-tight packaging).
Just another point-of-view...
