The machine "tct" runs off of one of these.  It works fine in a Compaq
Deskpro 386/25.

Some time ago I reported that it was generating spontaneous bad
blocks.  Eventually I had to reformat it, because the bad track table
was full.  I used the Compaq diagnostics to do a low-level format.
Presto!  The format came up clean, and no more bad blocks since then.
