Yes. HP sold several, the most famous being the Kennedy front-loader
drive. It was about the size of a Sparc 1 but a foot high with a hinged
door in the front. You opened it up, slid the reel in, and it would
autoload (most of the time). Sun resold them with Sun skins and label
back in the early 90's.
They're rare, unfortunately, and resellers love to snap them up. I
haven't seen one in at least a year.
