Yeah, the website says "Condition: new".  I wonder if that means like
new, or really new.

They have 50GB SCSI for $35 each, and IBM 36GB for $30 each.

Since either would be enough space for me (several of them), I would
like to pick the quieter of the two.

My Seagate and IBM SCSI drives are all fairly old, and noisy.

I'm hoping the 36/60 gig drives are a bit quieter since they are newer
than mine.
