I agree with Ross that everyone should have gone
differential. Heck, single-ended shouldn't have been spec'd out in the
first place. I'm sure that that $200 per drive would have quickly
become $20, and then $2, as production volume and integration went
up.... a classic example of saving money in the wrong places.
