I think you're getting confused.  The Erikson drives (IBM 60GXP range)
are really nice drives, and I've only seen good reports about them.
The IBM 75GXP range, though, has seen a lot of trouble both under
Linux and Windows.

Note that "60GXP" has nothing at all to do with being "60G" in size:
the 60GXPs come in a variety of different capacities.
