Let me guess. Lowball offers? I've got one of those drives in one of my systems, and as much as I like it, mine suffers from stiction and has developed some additional bad sectors over the years. I think mine has been stored inside all of its life but saw extensive use way back when. Got it from someone else around 1990. If I don't power it up for more than a week or so, I have to give it push to get it going. Thorough disk tests marked all weak sectors as bad - it is actually even formatted 15mb using an RLL controller, when it is running it is perfectly stable and usable.

Point is, if I were looking for a replacement I'd probably want more assurance that it was going to work and work well before shelling out $175.

I know a little on the high side I will sell just the drive for $100.00. I'll keep the controller and cables. So new price is $100 plus shipping I take paypal.
