iomega Prestige 1TB USB 2.0 3.5" Desktop drives

Маленькая заметка о разных версиях модели выносного твёрдого диска производства компании iomega. Ранняя версия работает с Solarisом, поздняя нет.

Just a quick note from my observations.

We bought a couple of iomega Prestige 1TB USB hard drives about a year ago.
The once I originally bought contain Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 disk, (ST31000528AS, disk made in China, site code is WU, datecode is 09356, firmware CC44) and the USB<->SATA chipset is JMicron JM20329, iomega PCB revision EC02-OW-10. (JM20329 seems to be similar to JMicron JM20339)

These disks work very well with Linux, Solaris and MacOS.

Recently I've RMAed to iomega one of these disks, and received a remanufactured replacement.
Remanufactured replacement contains identical disk, Seagate Baracuda 7200.12 ST3100528AS, but made in Taiwan (Site code TK, date code 10214, firmware is the same - CC44), but the USB <-> SATA chipset is SunplusIT SATALink SPIF301-HL237, iomega PCB revision EC02-015_10.



The latter PCB revision doesn't work well with Solaris, and generates continuous error messages in /var/adm/messages (pages and pages):
