[Q] SCSI disk alternatives?
Currently I have in my A4000D a 2.1GB Ultra SCSI disk connected to the USCSI controller on my WarpEngine CPU card. This actually is a very nice setup IMHO and works great and reasonably fast (just a feeling, not tested).
The SCSI drive provides a very nostalgic feeling when using the Amiga, but extended use is irritating because of the constant noise created by the drive. How did I stand to sit behind the Amiga so many hours at a stretch?
I'm looking for a smart and less noisy alternative, while still using the SCSI controller on the WE (because it gives me this speedy feeling ;-)).
Currently I looked at:
- Compactflash on the IDE port, tried this but is quite slow IMHO (again, untested). Must be the A4000 IDE port which sucks.
- USCSI to SATA bridge from ACARD, at about $200 a ridiculous option.
- SCSI to SAS adapters? I have a number of small and silent SAS drives, but no way to connect them to my miggie.
- 2.5 inch SCSI drives by Seagate, such as the ST936701LC.
Anybody have any experience with the above?
