There are at least half a dozen regular sellers on eBay; it's a buyers
market; 36's are really cheap, 73's are cheap, and you will find 146's
on there, though they're a touch pricier.

In general, we often get the SCSI's for less per GIG than the ATA's,
which seems a excellent deal, what with hot-swap and hardware RAID.

Trailing Edge Technology is now officially Fast Enough.
