Is this the DFHS 9GB?  I bought a number of these, and i have troubles in
my SS20/612 and in an Ultra.  No problems when installed in my DEC DS3305
SCA backplane, or via a Sun 611 chassis on a DEC 3000/300.

Are you running Solaris?  What version (i'm running Sol 8).  Are you
modifying the system to disable Command Tag Queueing...  Have you tried
running like 12 passes of 'format->analyze->read' on it under load?  For
me, i get *recoverable* errors, but i'd rather not run them in Suns if
this will happen.  (I have enough other systems i can use them in)
(i have only tried 2 of them, and have noticed that a LOT of the same
disks i've gotten from LowTech Louie lately have been with various
Firwmare, Vendor Names and block-sizes (512, 524))
