Funny, I tried googling a bare "3278" and got the terminal in the first of 33,400,000 hits.
Must have something to do with one's search history.

Used to use 3278s on occasion - in the mainframe terminal room where, as an undergrad, I was not supposed to be.  Just be casual and do one's best to look like you belong there. They were so much nicer than the bottom-end Hazeltines in the undergrad lab.
