kinda grasping at straws at this point

Eric Smith has been looking for info on the SMD Elite drives for over 10 years.

The non-SCSI Elite series were only around from 89-92

I was interested in them as the smallest physical example of an IPI interfaced

IPI didn't make much sense after SCSI-2 came out.

Probably the biggest user of the IPI interface was IBM midrange machines (S36-AS400)

The Sun IPI Elite drives are really cheap on eBay, and are being incorrectly advertised
as SCSI.
