I got a 5040 that finally went dead. I was able to resurrect the 40 GIG HD
once a while ago, but to no avail this time. I stumbled upon this ad

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite...

or tinyurl:

160 GIG Maxtor for $49 ($40 rebate). Good, bad, indifferent?

Other drives I should consider? Noise & heat are in the back of my mind.

I guess they didn't know that.

I'd bet money on it. What is the drive ID under System information?

It's not in the Replay anymore. Replaced with Western digital 120GB.

Wow, that brings back memories. I had a Leading Edge 286 that had what I
believe was an "RLL" drive, don't know the brand.

My first PC (XT with a NEC V20 CPU) had a 30MB Seagate RLL drive. I
bought this drive (with controller and cables) in 1989 for $300 and it
was still working when I sold that computer about 2.5 years ago.

and a 10 meg Seagate MFM hard drive.. 8)
That was an upgrade from my dual 5-1/4" floppy Commodore 128. Which was an
upgrade from my audio cassette storage Timex Sinclair. Which was an upgrade
from another audio tape storage computer, my dear first computer, Trash 80

Not to be outdone:

My first external hard drive for my Macintosh+ (all in one-8" screen) was a
20 GB and it set me back... Ready?..... $1299.

At that time, ~ 1987, I thought NO ONE would need more than 20GB for
ANYTHING.

Can't imagine what is going to happen in the next couple of decades...

I thought so too, but 30MB RLL drives didn't cost much more than 20MB
MFM ones.

Heh - Several of my friends worked for Leading Edge. :-) Though that
was mainly in the 386-through-Pentium days, post 286.

In the days of the 286 and the 8088, RLL drives were indeed used

The story of how the Winchester drive got it's name....

Well, it was designed and developed by IBM as the model 3030

They decided not to produc it, Turns out there is a company named
"Winchester" and they make a .3030 (note the addition of the decmil)
