OK guys, but please compare that to costs for SCSI drives (please 6 of
them, as you have partitions on the SDCARD), cost of SCSI controllers
(QBUS/UNIBUS anyone?), or even IDE drives.

So this is whining on a pretty high level, and there is no noise, so you
can keep your machines working. (and *** very easy backup too)

So, yes, there probably could be cheaper, but the guy spent a lot of
time making it working.

In my opinion, it is worth every penny.
