OK here's one that we flat missed: All 4G drives were withdrawn as of
Dec 29 so they are no longer available.

Here's my question: How many of you out there still use them and would
be pretty torqued to have to either replace 4s with 8s (cutting arm
count in half of course) or add 4 8s to your system to get more space
(assuming you are RAID protected)?

Maybe it's our customer base but we have many with just 4 drives so they
can get RAID, and most with 10 or fewer drives all 4G or smaller.  Now
having to get or add 25G MINIMUM to have RAID is a lot!  (Sure Sure on
your PC you store .MP3s and .AVIs and such which get huge fast but for a
small manufacturer 25G is a LOT!)
