  I think you'll find the DCAS-34330 drives are actually IBM.  I had one of
these for a while, it worked fine.  $99 is kinda depressing; I'm sure I paid
five or six times that when I got mine :-(

  From memory these are only 5400RPM drives so they might be a bit slow.

  Note that 10000RPM 18.4GB Seagates can be had for under $500 (brand new).
