I'm pretty happy with my little U2, but I'm thinking I might have been
better off with a U60.

Of course, as Murphy's Law dictates, I'm now seeing U60s everywhere I

New ones are so expensive, but I need to get up and running, so I might
have to buy a new drive or two.

I see a lot of deals on used drives, but rarely do they tell you how
old they are. 1-2 year old SCSI, I'm OK with that most of the time.
But most of what I find at places like spartantech and other shops
