Have you considered switching to RA-7x types instead? They've got that
handy 5.25" form factor and can be gotten for much less than the $500-$600
that dealers seem to want for a SCSI controller. I'm thinking about trying
to use them to replace some RA-81s I have on a Microvax II, and to add
some more storage to an 11/84 that's currently running off of RL02s.
