No sorry. I already gave away loads. Ask BuZz of exotica :-)

They were being thrown out from work to make room for 2TB disks. There are plus points to being a hard disk controller designer.

You mean like the ones that Marvell designs/creates ?!?

I know here in the states, storage is dirt cheap, just like memory pricing

To me second hand hard drives that have been in use for a few years aren't worth anything at all
