Hm. Isn't a half-height drive easier to fit than a full-height drive?
One of the 90X0 drives I picked up and sold last year was retrofitted
with a ST-225 if I recall correctly. It fit just below the controller
board and at a whole was slightly lighter than the Tandon 602S units.

I see from your blog that you needed taller risers to fit the ST-225.
In the four units I went though, I didn't notice any difference in
how the disks were secured.

A fun side note is that Seagate's website still has rudimentary
information about the ST-225, available through Google. However, if
you search by model number in their own system, nothing turns up. :)
