Also the reliability of the ones I have used in production in the past
& at home now has been excellent.  As I previously mentioned (I think),
is also nice to be able to locate the rather noisy array tray a fair
away from your workstation. The 2 big fans in the back of the tray
keep the drives nice and cool.
Also be sure that your SCSI cable is compatible.

Definately worth using the RSM tray.

There's some F/W differential sbus cards on ebay now for under $10.
