It was not as common on the market as drives of about this size from Western Digital (212MB), Conner (210MB), and Maxtor (213MB), but the Seagate 214MB unit was a good drive. In those days, we used to think that an extra 2MB was worth having!
We sold a few of these new, a few more of the Conner, quite a number of the Western Digital and absolute bucket loads of the Maxtor. I'm not sure that there was really all that much to chose between any of them in the final analysis, they all went well.
