PowerUser was the house brand name used by PC/Mac Warehouse. I know they
made a line of assorted equipment for the Mac, so I assume they also made
stuff for the PC. Most everything was just repackaged items made by

Based on the name, I would figure it to be a standard external SCSI hard
drive. A fairly standard item for the Mac, and quite commonly found in
the early Mac days.

I might even have a PowerUser SCSI drive kicking around some where (not
sure, I had a number of brands, I wasn't very brand loyal, so when I
needed a drive, I bought the cheapest... after I got burned on the
Jasmine/Rodime fiasco, I stopped worrying about who had the best rated,
and just bought on price and price alone)
