I would love to be able to afford a new 73.4 Gig Cheetah.

I was wondering if the Gurus ever refurbish older drives?

I would buy a used 73 Gig Cheetah if it was reasonably priced and not a dinosaur.

What generation is "to old"

I will use this for storage and backup.

System: 7500 with the XLR8 G3 400MHz upgrade, 288 megs RAM, OS 9.1, Miles2 + New 18 gig Cheetah,
