I was the one that started the "largest disk for a U60" thread. :-)
I actually bought two ST173404LCV's for a U2 back in April, but then when
I took them out of the box, I knew that they would definitely not fit, so
I returned them without opening the static bags. After the return, I
stumbled upon a Craigslist entry for a group of Ultra 60's, and I picked
up one. Its drive cage could easily take two 1.6" hard drives. D'oh!
However, I wanted the drives for this system to not die on me early, so I
ended up going the whole 9 yards and getting a pair of new,
5-year-warranty ST373207LC drives for $185 each. Maybe it was overkill,
but then I can still RMA them if one of them goes bad. I don't know how
loud or hot the ST173404LCV's would have been, but the ST373207LC's are
rather quiet and don't get that warm.
