Honestly though, aren't 90X0 drives mostly collectable? If it is broken, 
some people may want to have it in their collection nevertheless. For 
practical purposes of a storage device, I'm sure you can build something 
that is both smaller, lighter and more durable from almost scratch. On the 
other hand, I gave those drives away for postage in case they can be 
repaired, and replacing a broken SASI drive board with an IDE or memory card 
interface might be considered one kind of repair if you keep the DOS board 
limiting yourself to partitions of 5 or 7.5 MB each. :-D

Best regards
