    Fibre channel is a connection interface. You'll note that the second drive lists "80pin" in the description which is the more conventional scsi interface.

    So why are you thinking SCSI?

    I was not considering SCSI but when I saw a 18GB drive for $30 I became interested. I looked for a controller card and the cheapest one I could find was around $150. That kind of ruined it for me. I am trying to decide if it is worth the extra money to go with SATA. It costs more now but will I be glad I did it in a year or so?
