WTB: 50-pin SCSI HD
« on: May 13, 2008, 08:17:39 AM »
I'm looking for a SCSI HD to replace the dead drive in my A590. Anything Between 500MB and 4GB would do.

Only within Australia though. HDs don't travel well at the best of times, so the closer the better. :)

I just picked up a 18gig 50 pin scsi on ebay last night for $14. I saw lots of 1-4gig drives on there.

Ebay US, Yeah. But I can't find any on Ebay AU. As I said, I don't want to buy outside Australia.

depends how much you wanna spend. get a scsi to ide bridge, a cheap ide2compact flash adapter off ebay (i got 3 for £1UKP + £3UKP postage), then you can plug in off-the-shelf CF cards and enjoy silent computing, zero seek times, a cooler running system and with less strain on your PSU. :-)
for anything 4Gb or less, i don't really see any other alternative these days..

Try to find a pre-iMac Apple computer. I find them frequently for free or less than $5. They all have SCSI drives and from the PowerMacs I've picked up, they are all about 1GB or larger hard drives in them.

Get a SCA HD !!! They are cheap and fast ($10-$20), then buy a SCA to SCSI 50/68 pins ($2-$3)and enjoy !! It works so well in on my GVP  ;-)
