That model 9762 is only 80MB ^^^^
Here's one from 1956:
A massive 5MB of storage.
That table is an advert for mirrored raided pairs with different manufacturers drives for each mirror.
If it's important a single drive is asking for trouble.
I think the part of this thread I'm enjoying most is the "which coloured/size box looks best".
I dont remember the first hard drive I got to use but I know it was still referred to as a 'Winchester drive' at the time, and likely had a capacity around 20-30MB.
Much, much later I won a 50GB SCSI drive in 1998 or 1999 and it was still a double-height 5.25" drive that weighed shitloads.
When I was working as a programmer in the early 80s I had one of the first Winchester drives in the UK, which was 4Mb.
I promptly partitioned it into a 2Mb and two 1Mb logical drives
Have just replied to the "Revoo" review e-mail. I hope to goodness it gets past their quality-control droids. Even by my feedback standards my review's utter bollocks.
Also, kids today dont know how lucky they are with their tidy pc innards. Because, although admittedly it was only the case for my very first ibm-compatible pc, which had been owned by god knows how many people before me, I remember the days where there wasnt just one ribbon cable connected to internal hard drives, but two.
My PC still looks like I've bundled up a load of cables and just shoved them in there - sure, the cables are narrow now, but it's still spaghetti in there. Not helped by the fact my PC case has a seethrough panel on the side - hahaha
That's what my old one was like. The one that @mauvis passed on to be though is immaculate!
