Meh, they are for 2.5 drives... if they took 3.5 (heavy) it would be more
useful.

Beat me to that remark :-). I've seen exactly one 2.5" (laptop sized) SCSI
drive in my life, and that was in a long-departed DEC Alpha Multia.

I bought one of those slot adaptors from them a few months ago. Got a
couple of 2.5" SCSI drives I wanted to play with. 2.5" SCSI drives
were prevalent in the early PowerBook models (which started
transitioning to IDE sometime around the PowerPC-based models).

Yup, that would be the right vintage. Circa 1991-1993.

I'll have to start keeping my eyes open at flea markets and hamfests, although
I suspect they're all in a heap somewhere in China being "recycled".

There are some SCSI to IDE adapters which are 2.5" drive sized and are
in the form of a sled that fits under a modern 2.5" IDE drive and
makes it thicker. The folks who collect old PowerBooks probably have
a link.

Would be interested in hearing more about such adapters!

There was one seller on eBay several times some months ago, but the
adapter cost about $100 (and he/she doesn't seem to be selling
anymore). One of my 2.5" "SCSI" drives is similar -- a 1GB Microtech
RoadRunner drive which is an IDE drive bolted to a thin SCSI-IDE
adapter. May have been cheaper for Microtech to produce those
adapters and use IDE drives instead of producing real 2.5" SCSI drives
at that time.
