I'm not sure we'll ever build much mass around these drives and since they're not in the market any longer, people won't be looking to the data to make a buying decision. You could talk me out of it but I'm inclined to skip these.

I'd suggest that some people might still look old drives up for buying decisions. (Have you seen how much used IDE drives go for on ebay?) However, these ones aren't 7200 RPM and the historical data points will be too few (probably just mine) to be useful anyhow.

I won't try to talk you out of it. Just mentioned them for completeness, when I came across one.

Appreciated...we have big plans for overhauling that database which will make it more useful and easier to add items for site members.
