Bad Hardware: IO-DATA HDVS drives


Warning ... do not purchase I-O DATA HDVS external Ultra-SCSI drives.


They aren't SCSI.  They consist of a bargain-basement Samsung ATAPI drive
with a SCSI<->ATAPI translation board.  The board doesn't seem to do too good of
a job translating valid SCSI commands (or perhaps the drive doesn't actually
support them), so their usefulness as a non-Intel boot drive is nil.

Once again, "ya gets what ya pays for".  Forewarned is forearmed.
