I wonder if this would work with my SPARCstation 20? It should. Man, this would be just too awesome. Especially for about $100.00.

1) Auction closes TOMORROW (Thursday).
Trust me on this one, those drives will NOT be around $100 by
the time the auction ends. If they are, I'll buy them all :)

2) These drives use a SCA/80 pin interface. They are designed
for hot-swap bays. You can use them with a standard 68 or 50 pin
SCSI connector with an adaptor. Adaptors are about $10-15, tops.

Yep, I picked up one of these suckers at Egghead 4 months ago. It was a straight 68 pin connector too :) By the time the deal closed, it was about $285. Gotta love 'em 10K drives, especially for under $300 :)

The 68-pins SE/LVD version (WDE18310-0050) of this drive goes for just under $300 shipped. The non-Ultra160 (U2W/LVD, 68-pins, WDE18310-0040) version is cheaper. Check PriceWatch. You need to decide when it remains a good deal.
