would like to find 4-8 brand new drives for my SS20's and SS10's, it
looks like the cost is $100 - $200 for an entirely new drive. If anyone
has any suggestions or _trustworthy_ sources for a good drive, I'd
appreciate if you could mail me privately.. thanks everyone. I'm almost
wondering if I should just plug the old drives back in and use them..
they are just so loud and hot. Oliver
Why are you even worried ? You are playing around with a bunch of twenty
year old computers. Stop wasting money on it. There are probably 1000's
of components in a SS20 abut ready to go. They might not but, they very
well could. They eventually will.
If you are worried about the hard drives failing in a ss20 you're not
really grasping what you are playing with. Those you can replace.
Everything else is in fact going and can't be replaced. It is just a
matter of when.
