I went out and bought a drive today [2Gig, $189 at CSC/DDD] that has a
seek time of 11ms.  They had cheaper 2Gig drives..$135 at 13.5ms seek.

My question is:
	If I were to do a speed comparison of the two drives on my 3/60,
	would I see a speed difference?  Or in other words, what is the
	timing between SCSI commands?  

The bottom line:
	Did I buy any performance by buying this drive over the other one,
	if it is to run on my 3/60 until its heads crash?

thanks guys
