It may (should) say "Ultra SDAT" somewhere on the box.  This is
their highly obfuscated way of saying "this ain't no real
SCSI disk."  It probably doesn't say on the box what that

SDAT: SCSI Directed ATA Transfer

Buffalo also makes them, probably a lot of the others, too.
If you're buying an external SCSI disk and it seems as cheap
or cheaper than an internal one, beware.

Are these a Japan-only product?  A search on Google returns
20 pages of links, all in Japanese.
