I haven't bought a new drive in a while, since before the recent reports 
about some IBM drives having problems. However, every scsi drive I bought
for the past few years has been an IBM drive, and I've never had one fail
on me yet. The two 36gb drives in the BLU server are IBM scsi drives; 
we picked those up last summer.
