How about ESDI... I heard they had gig drives... but I don't think
I've ever run across anthing larger than a 600....

I used to have four 320 meg ESDI's running off of a Emulex MD25 bridge
controller running as 4 LUNs on one SCSI target.... still have em !
(don't use em though :-) ... I think I still have data I don't think
I backed up though.... one of these days.....)
