SCSI = old-school non-mainstream interface. But I'm sure you knew that.
. . . "minicomputers" were on the decline when SCSI was becoming standardized. I suppose it became the standard right at the end of the minicomputer era.)

One other factor that server drives are known for is their noise output. Running in an external box though, you would have the opportunity to do some noise reduction mods.

So, would an Ultra320 SCSI adaptable to our toys?
__if so: how?

You can install PCI cards in these slots to expand your computer’s capabilities. For
example, you can install a SCSI PCI card and then connect and use SCSI devices such as
scanners, hard disk drives, and Zip drives.
