Yeah, it's not like the tray itself can really fail.  With luck they
might even still have drives in'em.  If I can get my hands on some
*trays*, it's a perfectly good storage box.  I'm sure my E3000 wouldn't
care about the HP badge on the front.  Stuff the 3000, the SS/6 and the
UltraSCSI disk pack full of nice fat disks, and I could probably put
over a terabyte online from the one machine....

All this, of course, presupposes $$$ to buy the disk.
