    Around 1993 I was building a dual boot Win 3.1 and OS/2 machine based on a DX2-80 cpu and I was lucky enough to trade some stuff for an IBM 0664 2GB SCSI drive to use with it. Once Adaptec sent me a ROM update for my A1522 it was a fast and rock solid drive in that system. If I recall correctly, it was about a $2k drive at that time, so I was happy I wasn't actually buying it.

    CDC Wren drives have also held up well. I'm still running a 386 with a FH 300MB SCSI Wren IV drive. Driven with an Ultrastor 14N controller (a fairly rare bird).
