IBM 701 tech support guy I spoke with today advised against installing any
thing other than an IBM HD into the 701. He maintained that non IBM drives
either wouldn't fit, or if they did fit, would not work because of a
proprietary IBM connector.
Clearly, there's a corporate self interest in saying this, and I gather
>from other posts to this list that many have successfully installed
non IBM HDs into 701s.
My question is: are there any non IBM HDs to *avoid*? For example, I've
got a line on a 720HD that may have come from a new NEC or TI. Any reason
to believe they wouldn't work in the TP701?
Thanks in advance.
[Aside to PEP Sales: If you wish to post to list, fine, but no need to
email me privately].
