Ultra 5 & 10 boxes do not have onboard SCSI.  I still have my Ultra 10, from 
back in the day.  Two SCSI controllers added, one for each drive.  It made a 
SIGNIFICANT speed increase.

Also, from the same time period, I have a system built by a company called NIS 
that shipped with a Sun AXI board.  Same CPU as the Ultra 5 & 10 boxes, with 
SCSI on the system board.  Much nicer.

And if one finds its way to you, the Ultra 30/60's are nice boxes.
