Do you by any chance mean 3370's (as in disk drives) ?

I thought they were reliable enough if you checked them every day and gave 
them tender loving care :) About once every 3 or 6 months the IBM engineer 
would come around and do a HDA replacement on whatever was the latest disk 
that was showing signs of  wear and tear :)

I did only one system reload in 7 or so  years due to a 3370 crashing but I 
did 4 in a year due to the so called smarter 9332 model 600.

Ah those were the days when I thought raid was a flyspray :)

Cheers
