Re: cost of SCSI

     SCSI is cheap, not expensive.  Most SCSI controllers are running
somewhere between $100-150 right now.  These speak the ST-506 interface
standard, so all you need is a standard drive on the other end.

     Total cost: about $300.  Not too bad, is it?  Especially since most SCSI
controllers can handle two drives of almost any size, while the PC
controllers limit the size of the drives you can put on them.

     Most people have the idea that SCSI is expensive just because it's
expensive on the Mac.  For quite a few people, the first time they heard of
SCSI was in connection with the Macintosh... and *everything* that goes with
the Mac is expensive!
