Well, finally scored a beater external hard drive on fleaBay, a GVP A500.
Has no drive, and I paid way too much for it, but that's ok, as I really just wanted it for the SCSI connection. I can still install a drive in it, eventually, but I've got another external hard drive that I couldn't hook up without the interface.
My goal is to hack it for use with the A1000 (using KS 2.04 via a ROM switcher). I know it's gonna look strange with the back side facing forward, at least until I can mod a different case and do some re-engineering of the innards.
It's just a stop-gap measure while I pursue the hunt for those unicorns of A1000 peripherals, the elusive Sidecar and Starboard.
Is it worth wasting the time, or should I just stick to using it with the A500?
