	In the day I was still using my Apple IIGS as my main computer. As long as it 
was a SCSI drive it would work.

	I still use it for my Apple IIGS harddrive. If you have a bunch of working 
80MB units I wouldn't mind trading up and help you fill out your collection. 
The big thing is I still have to have a working unit on this machine. This is 
actually a clone of the Syquest drive. It's called a Dynatek.
