SCSI Hard Drives

Back in the day, if you got a Mac, your computer had a SCSI hard drive. For many years it was the only hard drive option that the Mac supported.

Fun Facts about SCSI Drives

SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) is a fast reliable storage solution.

For external SCSI drives, you need to make sure they had to have a SCSI termination.

They were more expensive than the IDE drives and had less storage space. Basically you're paying more per MB.

My Power Mac G4 400 Series (M7891LL/A) had SCSI support on the Motherboard. (72GB Ultra160 SCSI (10K rpm))

I still have several of these drives in my basement. Unfortunately, I don't have any means to read them on the latest iMacs. Ideally, I would have to get my old PowerMac G4 up and running to access whatever data I stored on the drives.
