Atari and JTS?? omg.

Haven't heard that name in a long time. In fact, I think I heard it only once. Unfortunately, it was a week when I was fed up with reliability problems of WD, Seagate, Quantum, Maxtor, Samsung and IBM drives, and lamenting the lack of an alternative (yes, "way back then"). Then I saw a JTS drive...bought a pair for a project, figuring "how bad can they be?"

Answer: unbelievably bad. Stunningly, incredibly, never-seen-before bad, leading to a disaster of a project (including data loss I absolutely could not blame on the client) which I'd love to forget... "second rate" doesn't begin to describe JTS drives.
