oh those old days...
bad days ?
I had no problem with any Quantum drive I purchased, fireballs were good (even brand new they sounded like a shaken bucket of nuts and bolts, but kept on chugging along), bigfoot's were slow but reliable.
and at least Quantum's warranty was a warranty, unlike Seagate at that time.
3 year warranty on Quantum's, no quibble straight swap brand new drive.
Seagate on the other hand, if it went wrong after three months all you got was a refurbished drive !
yeah that's a warranty (not)
they only had "that much" confidence in their products !
for that one reason I won't buy Seagate drives, put me off of the company for life
still, Quantum have gone, and Seagate may have changed their warranty stance now, I don't know, but then I don't care either, still not buying one
IBM "death star" anyone ?
oops, off topic.................sorry
