[Storage Units] [Hard Disks] [CDROM/CDR/CDRW/DVDROM] [DAT/Floptical/DLT] [SCSI cards] [Cables, Adapters and Terminators] [Misc]
I have a wide variety of SCSI items for sale, including JBOD RAID units, single-item external enclosures, hard drives, CDRW/CDROMs, DAT drtives, SCSI cards, cables, terminators, etc. The available items are as follows:

Storage Units:


Hard Disks:

This is the same Disks Table sequence as shown on the Parts/Spares page, included here aswell merely for convenience and cross-referencing. Original SGI-branded disks are listed in a separate table as they are priced differently. See after the tables for detailed notes, warranty information, etc. Generic SCSI disks, or OEM such as HP, Dell, Compaq, etc.:

Some drives still have valid manufacturer warranties; any such drive in the tables above will have the manufacturer name in bold type, and when I am able to find the time the model number will be a link to the warranty details for that drive, or a picture (or both); either way, feel free to email me for full details.

OEM drives do not have end-user warranties by definition, but I will cover any 15K rpm drive for 90 days, any 10K rpm drive for 60 days, any 7200rpm drive for 30 days, and any 5400rpm drive for 10 days, whatever the manufacturer's warranty may be. Extended warranty cover available on request as follows:

        WARRANTY     | <-- Existing Warranty Period -->

O2 can only use 1" 80pin SCA disks (though the external port can be used to connect to any type of drive), whereas Octane, Onyx2 and Origin can use both 1" and 1.6" SCAs.

IRIS Indigo and Indigo2 can use all types of drive, via a SCSI adapter for 68/80pin models, though I would recommend an 80pin SCA + adapter (the adapter for 68pin is expensive, while 50pin disks of any reasonable capacity are also expensive). I have suitable 50/80pin adapters available for +10.

Indy normally uses 1" 50pin disks; 1.6" is possible, but prevents the use of the upper disk bay. 68pin and 80pin disks can be used with a suitable SCSI adapter, though an 80pin + adapter will block the upper bay because the adapter is so high. The best solution is a 1" 68pin disk + adapter, which still leaves the upper bay available for use.

Fuel normally uses 68pin disks, but can use an 80pin with an adapter, for which it is best to use a modern drive which can properly exploit the faster U160 SCSI bus, eg. a Maxtor Atlas 15K II, whereas the slower bus in O2/Octane/Onyx2/Origin is more sensibly served with an older drive that cannot sustain more than 40MB/sec anyway, and is therefore cheaper, eg. the 36GB ST336704LCV or 73GB ST173404LCV, although a modern drive does give faster access times which would help when dealing with lots of small files, eg. code compilation, databases, email archive searching, etc. A 15K drive in Octane definitely helps for such tasks. I recommend the Fujitsu 15K MAS series for O2 as it is fast but low noise; likewise, the MAS or MAX 15K is ideal for Octane.

The addition of a PCI cage (or XTalk adapter) and a suitable SCSI card (eg. U2W or U160) will also allow Octane to properly exploit a modern fast drive, especially in RAID configurations (I get 175MB/sec off a simple dual-channel JBOD RAID on a QLA12160, though the same RAID runs much faster with a Fuel/Tezro since those systems have faster 66MHz PCI [Fuel] or 133MHz PCIX [Tezro]).

Tezro uses 80pin disks internally, but unlike Octane the sleds are designed only for 1" models. One can of course connect any type of drive externally. As with Fuel, it is worth having a fast drive since Tezro can properly exploit the extra speed, eg. a 15K (the Maxtor 146GB 15K II is ideal for Tezro).

Larger capacity drives are listed first. For drives of equal capacity, those with much higher sustained transfer rates may be valued higher, ie. drives that are ideal for Fuel, Tezro, or for use in RAID setups. Follow the 'specs' link for detailed information on any drive. The table already shows average access time in milliseconds and typical maxium sustained transfer rates to aid comparisons.

Lastly, note that original SGI-badged drives are more expensive than a non-SGI drive of the same capacity, or even the same model; but there is no need for hobbyists to use original SGI drives. This is why the SGI drives are in a separate table.


DVD/CDROM/CDR/CDRW Modules:

For any internal CDROM/CDRW module, add 40 to make it an external unit with all cables included.


DAT/Floptical/DLT and Other Drives:


SCSI cards:


Cables, Adapters and Terminators:

All cables with 1 or more VHDCI connectors are suitable for use with QLOGIC 1080/1280/12160 SCSI cards. Long cables are ideal in order to position noisy storage units at a distance.


Miscellaneous SCSI Items:
