Yeah, they are sort of a necessity.

The SCSI2SD v5.1 should be faster than the Q-Bus.  I bought several recently, and plan to put one in my PDP-11/73.  I even opted for these for my VAXstation 4000’s.  I figure I’ll use the newer ones in an AlphaStation.

I’d also love to have one of these, preferably using SD or CF cards.  The Webster WQESD/04 card is a fantastic card, it’s only downfall is that it works with ESDI drives, rather than SCSI, and they’re big and loud. :-)
