These drives have been widely used on computer systems since the mid '80s. Fixed mounted with sealed media, these drives pushed the limits of disk design capability at the time, with capacity up to 2.5GB and transfer rate to 3MB/sec.

The EID-1 is based on Arraid's AEM-1, however, where the AEM-1 is designed to be a flexible, multi-purpose disk replacement with lots of options and advanced features, the EID-1 is fixed purpose with very limited options. Each EID-1 is programmed at the factory to replace a specific manufacturer and model number of 8" Winchester disk drive. This can not be changed by the Customer.
