As 3rd party vendors in the IBM plug-compatible arena went, 
Memorex was pretty large.  We had an IBM shop at Washington 
University, but after the CPUs, practically the whole room 
went to Memorex-supported gear.  They get 3330-compatible 
drives, later upgraded to 3350-compatible, and maybe later 
upgraded again.  They used Memorex 3674 controllers (they 
had 2 of them).  They had at least one Memorex 1270 com 
controller.  They had two 370/145s with AMS/Intersil 1 Meg 
memory units, installed and supported by Memorex.  I can't 
recall specifics, but I think there were other memorex units 
there, too.
