I feel the same way about my Kt7a board. I won't sell that thing for nothing. I've had that board up and running for over 10 yrs. It's like the Energizer Bunny, keeps going and going. :toast:

I've got waaaaay too much stuff that's much older than most of the items already posted here (and probably older than a lot of members), but it's 4:15 AM here right now so I don't really feel like digging everything out atm :p

You'll have to make due with few HDDs for now..

I also have one Quantum Bigfoot of each series (CY, TX, TS), a Seagate Barracuda 4GB 3.5" full height SCSI drive from ~1996 (?) and a HP SureStore Disk 2000LP 2GB SCSI HDD from January 1996 somewhere.
And a 40MB NEC MFM HDD and a WD/Tandon 20MB MFM HDD plus the accompanying Amstrad PC1640 (8086 8MHz, 640KB RAM) they came out of / are in atm.

Oh and yeah.. all of this is still fully functional :cool:

I was gunna post some old ram, or my NF7-S but you guys have seen it all, but have you seen this beast at a whopping 133mhz, and with an enormous 2mbs of ram?! This thing hasn't seen the light of day in a very very long time.


Sorry for the bad pics, I swear I took a lot more! They just disappeared on me :c

I had a PII server pc, but I can't find it anymore. I may have trashed it a while ago...

I've got waaaaay too much stuff that's much older than most of the items already posted here (and probably older than a lot of members), but it's 4:15 AM here right now so I don't really feel like digging everything out atm :p

You'll have to make due with few HDDs for now..

Seagate ST351A/X (40MB singleplatter. one of the last stepper drives)

Seagate Marathon 260SL (2.5" 10mm, 262MB, 4000rpm, 120KB Cache, from 1994)

Toshiba MK2124FC (2.5" full height (20mm), 130MB, 2 platters, 3200rpm, 32KB Cache, from 1991)
pretty bad pic but anyways

I also have one Quantum Bigfoot of each series (CY, TX, TS), a Seagate Barracuda 4GB 3.5" full height SCSI drive from ~1996 (?) and a HP SureStore Disk 2000LP 2GB SCSI HDD from January 1996 somewhere.
And a 40MB NEC MFM HDD and a WD/Tandon 20MB MFM HDD plus the accompanying Amstrad PC1640 (8086 8MHz, 640KB RAM) they came out of / are in atm.

Oh and yeah.. all of this is still fully functional :cool:

edit: edited the IMG tags to URL cause the forum doesn't seem to auto-resize them (probably because the pics are in portrait, not landscape)

:rockout: awesome old hard drives!!!

Adding you to the original post.

One of the drives has a sticker that says "Do not low-level format." Why would that be?
Uneducated guess: A real low-level format wouldn't only get rid of the data, but also the tracking information, basically bricking the drive cause the heads don't know where they're at / where they're supposed to go (?)

Those old stepper HDDs worked more like an oversized floppy drive than a HDD of today. Sort of a hybrid between the two, with more "floppy-tech".
It even mattered how you mounted them. A stepper HDD formatted horizontally wouldn't work properly if you mounted it vertically, cause gravity would pull the (compared to todays drives very simple) mechanics slightly out of alignment.

I like the packaging on the 3.5" floppy. Because when you think of floppy disks, you think of peas, right?
and a marketing department had to look at all of the available presentations and pick THAT one as the best for their product :laugh::roll::roll:

Well with this recent awesome purchase I just figured I would have to share a couple of photos with everyone.

Okay not really what one would really consider "nostalgic" but more like "epic" :laugh: So I figured I would include it for your enjoyment.
