They sound like machine guns going off (i. e. they're loud)? :-)

Seriously, there isn't any problems with DEC drives that I know of.
Although I believe one person has just noticed his DEC drive having a
problem with tagged-command-queuing (sorry, wasn't watching that

This is complicated by the fact that many DEC drives are made by other
companies (Quantum, Conner, Seagate, etc.), and just have a DEC label
slapped on them.

There was a series of Quantum drives that screwed up tagged-command-
queuing (the Empires?).  But I believe that is history, and all the
current Quantum drives work correctly (can anyone confirm this?).
