Our experience with Micropolis drives left a lot to be desired. Four of 16
arrived dead. Eight of the remaining drives died within a month or so.
I think the other 4 are rotting on a shelf somewhere, nobody wants to bother
with them. Could have been an unusually bad batch, I guess?
There is a reason Micropolis disappeared. The Seagates and WD's that we buy
now seem worth the money.
Just my 2 cents worth,
