Hot swap -vs- Ultra 320 SCSI

Hot swap -vs- Ultra 320 SCSI

Hot swap -vs- Ultra 320 SCSI

I have an older IBM XSeries 235 that has everything but the drives.  It is hot swappable but I really do not need the hot swap features(Not worth the extra cash that would have to shell out)  I would like to find out if I can use regular ultra 320 drives in a caddy adaptor.  If any one can let me know the part number for the caddy it would be much apreciated.



RE: Hot swap -vs- Ultra 320 SCSI

I have not seen an U320 drive that was NOT hot swap...


RE: Hot swap -vs- Ultra 320 SCSI

You can buy them each way.  right now on Ebay the non-HotSwap 146 gig drives go for about $60 dollars each while the hot swap go for about 200 to 300.  I think the caddy I need goes for about 15 dollars each.
