This is the main system disk inside my HyperSPARC SS20/180, a Seagate
9 GB (model ST39173WC). Only US $25 at
Tons of SCSI disks for cheap on that site.
Mine's run very reliably for years now. I'm amazed at how this SS20
and this disk drive just keep on chugging along. I keep waiting for a
rainy LA weekend to move everything over to my Ultra 60 and retire this
