Looking for a SCSI 3/Ultra Wide (aka LVD) SCSI controller.
Adaptec makes one, Bus logic makes one, QLogic (who I don't
know) makes one.
Adaptec: aha2940u2w (around US$290)
Mylex: BT-958w US$???
Any recommendations as to which ones are good (or at least suck
less)? I understand the difference between 'the host can run
with the card in' and 'high performance I/O lets it get 60MB/s,
sustained.' It needs to run under OpenBSD 2.4 (or greater) and,
for testing sake, under Linux (briefly, so I can keep the
emulation libs up to date!).
I would also need to attach scsi 3 (plain 68pin) disks to the
chain as well.
It will cohabitate with an older ISA adaptec card that supports
slower devices (CDRom, 8mm tape, slower disks) unless I can attach
them without much worry (the adaptec seems to support SCSI 2 and
