It also makes it harder to replace the disk later... Fortunately in this case, the 5 MB Tandon 602S found in a D9060 is to most part possible to replace with a 20 MB (?) Seagate ST-225. However due to the hard coded addressing, only 1/4 of the latter disk will be in use. I think the same holds true for the 7.5 MB Tandon 603S but it requires a ST-231 or such. Actually one of the persons who had expressed an interest in a D9060 decided to not buy it from me when I announced it contained a ST-225 rather than the original Tandon drive. I suppose it is important if you want it for your collection and not so much for using it.
