The "SlimSCSI" 1460 and 1480 are PCMCIA SCSI adapters for use in laptops
and other portable devices. The 1460 requires a PC card slot and supports
SCSI-2, while the 1480 requires a CardBus slot and supports UltraSCSI
The "MiniSCSI" 1350 allows you to connect SCSI devices to your parallel
port. If you use this you will be limited to parallel-port speeds, so
you may not be able to record at more than 2x.
