New SCSI -> SD adapter

I came across this before xmas and thought that users here might be interested.

It is a home-brew SCSI->SD card adapter using an ARM MC.

It is functionally comparable to an A card AEC-7720U + IDE->SD adapter or an Aztech Monster

And?

Well look at the price.. $72 that is 30% cheaper than the Aztech monster. I can imagine the price dropping once they enter mass production because at the moment they are being made to order by hand.

Good luck to the guy. I hope that he is able to find enough customers to make a few quid.

The performance of the device is very low, especially write speed. It doesnt even support synchronous mode. You can not compare this to Acard.

I have had one of these for a couple months now.

I use it in my X68000 XVI and it works fantastically there.

However, I don't think you would see much a benefit to using it on a fast Amiga with the scsi bus. I believe the read/write speed tops out around 2 megabytes a sec or so.

Was interested until I read this. My old scsi disk still manages 7 megabytes a second. Looks good if you dont mind the speed though.

Err why not go SCSI-PCMCIA and use SD card same result & speed. PCMCIA slot is more flexible as it can use a wide range of different flash cards.

I wouldnt mind replacing the loud old drive in my 2000 with a flash based solution. I won't be paying $72 to do it though.
