All the beige G3's, be they towers, All-In-Ones or Desktops, have ATA (IDE) controllers on the board. Some did have PCI SCSI cards and SCSI hard drives, but switching to IDE drives is not a problem.Originally posted by ptrauber
Don't the old beige G3's take SCSI hard drives? If so, then all of the prices listed above are meaningless. SCSI hard drives are much more expensive if you want more than 20 gigs. You can find 10 gig UW scsi drives on ebay for only $20 though. (10,000rpm!!)
hmm...well what do u think of the Western Digital & Seagate compared to the IBM??Originally posted by Rower_CPU
One caveat about those drives...they're not meant to be used for servers. From the specs:
* Recommended power-on hours (monthly) 333
That's less than 14 days of use per month, or 11 hours/day...just thought you should know...
